“The Grit Project”: Success in the Law w/Sullivan & Cromwell and Jenner & Block

January 30, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

OCS presents this talk from Milana Hogan, chief legal talent officer at Sullivan & Cromwell, and Charlotte Wager, chief talent officer at Jenner & Block.

Ms. Hogan and Ms. Wager will discuss the growing body of research that seeks to understand what highly successful lawyers have in common and will focus on two traits in particular—grit and a growth mindset—that have been shown to predict long-term success in today’s complex and evolving law firms as well as in government, non-profit and in-house roles.

This highly interactive program will educate students about the science behind these traits, provide them with specific tools to assess their current levels of grit and growth mindset, and offer practical advice from law firm leaders (and a few war stories) about how best to incorporate these concepts now and in the future. Come prepared by taking the Grit Quiz in advance: Lunch from Flour Bakery.

If you or an event participant requires disability-related accommodations, please contact HLS Accessibility Services in the Dean of Students Office at, or (617) 495-1880 in advance of the event.
