Date: March 20, 2019

Time: 4:00AM - 6:00AM

Location: Mintz, One Financial Center, Boston, MA

Stress is inherent in the life of an attorney, especially an in-house attorney. Days are consumed with balancing competing deadlines, managing budgets, overseeing bet-the-company issues, dealing with C-suite oversight, and handling unforeseen curveballs.  Your life isn't just stressful - it's full of stress. And, notably, for women attorneys and attorneys of color, there are added layers of societal and workplace dynamics in play.  But, when does this fast-paced, demanding, and unique style of life become a detriment to the quality of your work product and to your overall lifestyle?

This ACC Northeast session will be geared towards addressing questions, learning tactics to balance your work day, and ways to prevent stress from developing into full-on burnout.  Hear from peers/colleagues who have found successful approaches to managing stress and finding a more balanced life.
