Blakes’ Grit and Growth Mindset for Career Success Workshop

On Tuesday, February 27, 2018, Blakes is hosting a half-day workshop from 3pm to 5:30pm for lawyers working in-house who are women of colour. The session will be led by Aracely Muñoz, an expert on leadership, diversity and inclusion, and gender and racioethnic barriers in the workplace, and will cover:

  • How personal attitudes and behaviours affect career outcomes – even more than intelligence, raw talent, and other perceived fixed abilities;
  • How gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation impact the way grit and the growth mindset are applied; and,
  • How internal and external biases moderate career outcomes

The program will contain 2.5 hours of Professionalism – RSVP here.
