Feeling Burnt Out? So many of us are feeling this way, especially since the pandemic, but thanks to our sponsor, Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, our members were given the time, tools and space to learn how to manage and treat the signs and symptoms of burnout. The event was titled "Legal Burnout is Real - How to Spot it and Avoid it in this Summer and Beyond" and held on Tuesday, August 1, 2023.  This event could not have been more time appropriate. And the keynote presentation by Cait Donovan was dynamic and engaging. Whether someone personally needed to learn these skills or whether they manage a team and need to be able to identify these signs in others - this event was for everyone! The ACC-NYC Women & Gender group had an amazing evening in the Glass Ceiling Nomad space - the weather was perfect and the event format (which included the keynote done as a 20 minute micro presentation), really allowed time for the members to learn the lesson, engage with the speaker one-on-one, and network.  Each participant also received a handout that would walk them through what they learned and how to apply the skills to their personal concerns.  The sponsors worked closely with the keynote speaker to make sure that both the handout and presentation were specifically tailored to an in-house counsel audience.  Thank you again Kelley Drye and Cait Donovan for a fantastic evening!
