Butzel Long hosts the ABA Woman Advocate Committee’s Regional Education and Networking event on September 22, 2015

DETROIT, Mich. – Butzel Long’s Women’s Leadership Committee is the Michigan host for the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Woman Advocate Committee’s Regional Education and Networking brown bag lunch program at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at the firm’s offices in Ann Arbor, Bloomfield Hills and Detroit.

The featured topic is, “The Grit Project: True Grit and a Growth Mindset,” which is designed to be a discussion-based program where individuals learn about grit and growth mindset and then apply the frameworks to a problem.

The conference call will feature Milana Hogan of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP. She will provide an overview of the Grit & Growth Mindset research. A video will follow outlining two scenarios – – “Struggling with Your Workload” and “Bullying in a Deposition.” Local hosts of the program will lead a discussion on how grit and mindset can be applied to the two scenarios.”

“The ABA Regional Networking events are excellent opportunities for women attorneys to gather for professional development and networking,” said Robin Luce Herrmann, attorney and shareholder, Butzel Long, and Co-Chair of the Regional Networking Roundtable subcommittee.
