Summary of 21 Day Grit & Growth Mindset Project - TJAGLCS

21 DAY GRIT AND GROWTH MINDSET PROJECT | 1 CONCEPT: We invite you to participate in a 21 day challenge composed of short daily activities that will help you to build your knowledge of these concepts and acquire tools to develop grit and a growth mindset-orientation. INTRODUCTION: The ABA Commission on Women in the Profession created the Grit Project “to educate women lawyers about the science behind grit and growth mindset – two important traits that many successful women lawyers have in common.” Grit and growth mindset, in turn, help to build resilience and confidence. When combined with a sense of purpose, authenticity and community, these traits help to keep women in the profession – even while we work to address the larger systemic challenges that threaten to deplete the number of women practicing law. HOW THIS WORKS: The 21 Day Grit and Growth Mindset Challenge was created to help you develop and enhance your grit and growth mindset by consistently engaging in short, daily challenges: reading thought provoking articles, watching videos, reviewing case studies, and taking concrete, habit-forming actions. Do them on your own, or form a Grit Group to unpack the challenges and learnings together. Throughout the challenge and afterwards, the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession’s Grit Project Toolkit is at your disposal for further resources and opportunities to engage and further build your grit and growth mindset muscles. 21 Day Grit and Growth Mindset Project 21 DAY GRIT AND GROWTH MINDSET PROJECT | 2 PRE- WORK Do the Grit Self-Assessment: https://angeladuckworth.com/grit-scale/.
