Top female lawyers and executives find that part-time isn't a career killer

Claire Bushey writes, "When attorney Rebecca Eisner decided to go part-time for the sake of her family, she thought she had turned her back on an equity partnership at Mayer Brown. From 1996 to 2004, the University of Michigan law grad billed between 60 and 80 percent of the hours required for full-time. It was only after a powerful colleague, former Illinois Attorney General Ty Fahner, asked why she wasn't a partner that Eisner reconsidered her trajectory."
