Passion & Purpose: The Secrets of Gritty Women
Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP, 6:30 PM GMT
This meeting has reached capacity so online registration is unavailable. On-site registration will be available based on a first-come, first-served basis.
For good reasons, grit has become a popular topic. But it’s often misunderstood. It’s true that grit often predicts who achieves the highest levels of career success. But what exactly is grit from a scientific perspective? Can it be developed? Do other people affect our grit levels? Can grit sometimes be bad for us? And can grit research offer guidance to women wanting to advance and succeed in the legal profession over the long-term? If you’re interested in these questions, please join us for a fun and informative networking event for women in law.
Three grit experts and authors will provide insights from their own research—Anne Brafford, author of Positive Professionals: Creating High-Performing, Profitable Firms Through the Science of Engagement; Milana Hogan, author of Grit – The Secret of Advancement: Stories of Successful Women Lawyers; and Caroline Miller, author of Getting Grit: The Evidence-Based Approach to Cultivating Passion, Perseverance, and Purpose. Following that will be a happy hour to connect and socialize with other gritty women in the profession! A warm thank you to Morgan, Lewis, & Bockius LLP for hosting this event.
Who Might Be Interested in This Event: Women lawyers and law students, professional development staff in law firms, coordinators of women lawyer initiatives
