LATINA LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS

2021 HNBA LATINA LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS

Each year, during the HNBA Annual Convention, the Commission offers professional development and leadership training programs aimed at Latina lawyers. The Latina Leadership Academy and the Latina Executive Leadership Program offer curriculum specifically developed for Latina attorneys and draws from a significant body of research from both the Commission and other leading organizations. The programs address areas identified as key to shattering glass ceilings and securing the advancement and long-term success of Latina lawyers—the most underrepresented group in the legal profession. Currently, Latinas comprise 1.47% of all lawyers even though they represent one in four women in the United States. To help advance Latinas in the profession, this year the Commission will be presenting two leadership programs and we invite eligible women to apply.
