  • "[This book contains] research by the Commission on Women in the Profession begun two years ago on grit and growth mindset, two traits that have been shown to impact the success of women lawyers. The original study focused on large law firms; the Commission's expanded research covered all legal work environments: solo practice; small, medium, and large firms; corporations; government; and nonprofits. The book also is a collection of 47 letters from a group of diverse women who have used these principles to advance in their careers, and each woman shares her advice, insight, and experience as a female attorney who has achieved success in the practice of law."--
