About the Program
In the past two decades, women and men have entered law firms as first-year associates in roughly equal numbers.  However, by the time women arrive at the most senior leadership levels – non-equity and equity partners – they represent only 29 percent and 17 percent of their peers, respectively.  These individuals, among the most highly successful women attorneys in the country, share two traits: grit and growth mindset.  The best news?  Women attorneys have control over them.

You Will Learn

  • What is grit and why does it matter
  • What is a growth mindset, and why do so many women attorneys lack it
  • How to tackle some of the most difficult real-world work problems
  • How some of the grittiest women attorneys in Connecticut have managed to succeed, both as practicing and non-practicing attorneys
