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. The best news is that these traits can be learned. Join our panelists for a lively discussion on how these traits can be developed and assist in your success.
