Caitlin A. Donahue, an attorney in Cipriani & Werner’s Lancaster office, was invited to participate in the 21 Day Grit and Growth Mindset Challenge. The Challenge was created by the American Bar Association Commission on Women in the Profession to help women lawyers develop and enhance their “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.
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.
Attorney Donahue is one of thirty women in the Lancaster Bar Association participating in the Challenge that began on November 1st.
