    True Grit and a Growth Mindset: The Secrets of Success

    Unknown, 12 AM CST

    In the past two decades, men and women have entered the practice of law in roughly equal numbers. However, by the time women arrive at the most senior law firm levels, they represent a mere 15% of equity partners. While studies have identified obstacles that contribute to this gender gap, this program identifies two of the characteristics--grit and growth mindset--that many successful women attorneys have in common, often above other measures such as IQ, class rank, or law school. This program will educate participants about the science behind these traits, provide attendees with tools to assess their levels of grit and growth mindset, and offer practical ways to incorporate these concepts. Ultimately, these traits can be leveraged to enhance the quality and effectiveness of women lawyers and ensure competence, better communication between attorney and client, and zealous advocacy on behalf of the client.
