OBA Women Lawyers Forum PROGRAM | Original Program Date: September 17, 2018

We often hear the words stressful, demanding and challenging to describe the nature of legal work. What we do not hear often is the positive and rewarding aspects of building a career in law. Gain insight from our mental health experts on how legal professionals are incorporating health, wellness and good habits in their professional lives. Our engaging panel will discuss how lawyers can build resilience while juggling the demands of superiors and clients, as well as competing deadlines.

Join us for a much needed conversation about the skills women lawyers need to remain healthy in and passionate about the legal profession. Share your own personal stories of resilience. Explore what it truly means to be resilient, and to thrive as a lawyer.
