  As one of the leading bar organizations in the state of Texas, we are proud of our history and excited about our future. BCWB has a strong tradition of service to the community and of promoting equal justice under the law. Most importantly, we support Bexar County women attorneys, from varying backgrounds and practices, through education, networking, mentoring, and social support systems.

We continue our long history of service to and support of women attorneys as we continue our LEAD Academy!  

Are you a woman attorney?  Do you have what it takes to LEAD?

This opportunity is for YOU!

The Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation is seeking women attorneys interested in participating in the LEAD Academy, a year-long leadership-development program borne out of a desire to assist women attorneys in attaining the highest level of success in their firms and organizations, in their communities, and in the legal profession.  The LEAD Academy aims to achieve this goal by teaching participants to:

  • Lead in a way that is authentic and effective;
  • Empower themselves and others;
  • Advance professionally and personally; and
  • Develop robust professional networks.   

The LEAD Academy prepares participants to apply their talents as leaders and increases their value to their firm or organization. Women are an essential component of the success of firms and organizations. Companies and firms benefit when women assume significant leadership roles and serve as role models for other women on the rise within their organization. Additionally, women provide the diversity that clients prefer and often require.

The Steering Committee has found the LEAD Academy curriculum to be applicable to women attorneys at many stages of their careers, and anyone with interest is encouraged to apply.  Previous LEAD Academy classes consisted of sixteen attorneys with two to fourteen years of practice.  Class members include attorneys engaged in private practice, members of in-house legal departments, and non-profit counsel. 

Interested attorneys may simply apply.  Please contact Ashley Senary Dahlberg at ashley.dahlberg@nortonrosefulbright.com for application materials or download materials here. The deadline for submission of 2020 materials is October 18, 2019.
