Grit Expert Speaks at Penn Law

March 24, 2014

Penn Law’s Center on Professionalism is honored to welcome renowned Penn Psychology researcher, Penn Associate Professor of Psychology, and 2013 MacArthur Fellow Dr. Angela Duckworth to Penn Law to discuss her celebrated research and explain why it applies uniquely to the legal profession on March 31 at noon in Fitts Auditorium. RSVP here. Whether you seek greater effectiveness and satisfaction in the academic, professional or personal arenas of your life, Dr. Duckworth’s research increasingly shows that grit, which she defines as the tendency to sustain interest in and effort toward very long-term goals, is critical to achieving success. Dr. Duckworth has presented her research to an incredible array of organizations, from local school districts to Fortune 500 companies like General Mills and Xerox, to some of the nation’s most elite law firms, including Goodwin Proctor. We are thrilled that she will be presenting her findings to the Penn Law Community, and we welcome you to join us for this exciting event!
