Feature Event:

CLE – Building Resilience in the Face of Adversity

The Diversity Committee of the Federal Bar Association – Minnesota Chapter, along with the University of Minnesota Student Chapter, and Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers, are pleased to host this one-hour CLE event exploring the topic of building resilience in the face of challenging circumstances.

In the best of times legal professionals are at risk for high levels of stress and mental health challenges. During times of greater challenge, our professional and personal lives may seem out of control and this can affect our work, school, and relationships. This program will feature three panelists who can speak to their experiences starting careers, changing careers, and finding meaning in their careers throughout the past year. In addition to presenters discussing both their own experiences and career trajectories, the program will also discuss the stigma surrounding recognizing and addressing challenges in our profession and identify tools to cope and to thrive while developing and enhancing skills to identify and address individual needs.

Please join us for this unique conversation.
