    Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation’s LEAD Academy Receives Texas Bar Foundation Grant; Inaugural Class Selected

    San Antonio, TX –The Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation (BCWBF) today announced that it has been awarded a $7,500 grant from the Texas Bar Foundation to help launch LEAD Academy, a year-long leadership-development program for women attorneys.

    The Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation’s LEAD Academy was born out of a desire to combat the attrition of women in the legal profession.  The program’s Steering Committee has spent three years developing the program, which aims to assist women attorneys in attaining the highest level of success in their firms and organizations, their communities, and the legal profession by teaching class members 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.

    “We are incredibly thankful for this generous grant from the Texas Bar Foundation, which will allow us to give women attorneys a unique opportunity to grow professionally and personally,” said LEAD Director Tiffanie Clausewitz.  “LEAD will also benefit our San Antonio community by enhancing the ethical and professional practice of law, and by developing strong community leaders.”

    The Academy will begin with a two-day symposium in February 2017, followed by quarterly seminars and a graduation celebration in December 2017. Faculty for the symposium and seminars is made up of local, statewide, and national speakers, who will educate class members on a wide-range of topics.  Class members are chosen based on their accomplishments in the legal community and demonstrated potential to become leaders. 

    The members of LEAD Academy’s 2017 inaugural class are:

    • ·         Lara Brock, Espinoza Law Firm, PLLC
    • ·         Stephanie Curette, Hornberger Fuller & Garza Incorporated
    • ·         Ashley Senary Dahlberg, Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP
