The Bexar County Women's Bar Foundation has released the application for the inaugural LEAD Academy class! The LEAD Academy is a leadership-development program born 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 with self-awareness and self-confidence; Advance in their firms or organizations; and Develop robust professional networks.
The LEAD Academy will begin with a two-day symposium, followed by quarterly seminars and a graduation celebration. Faculty for the symposium and seminars include local and national experts on wide-ranging topics detailed on our program page. In addition to instructional time, each session will include interactive workshops to allow participants to apply the learning to their specific practices.
Women attorneys selected for participation in the LEAD Academy must be members of the State Bar of Texas with approximately three to eight years of experience (variations in length of experience will be considered); aspire to lead and have the demonstrated potential to become leaders; and want to serve their communities and the profession and be committed to the promotion of women in the legal profession.
