2022 Corporate Counsel Conference



The Latina Leadership Academy (The Academy) will take place virtually on Friday, March 18, 2022 from 12:00 pm – 5:30 pm EST and will offer relevant professional development and leadership training to Latina lawyers who have been in the profession 10 years or less. The Academy’s curriculum builds on successful programs on Grit and Growth Mindset and delves into concepts of cultivating executive presence, leadership skills, and authenticity in organizations where Latinas remain underrepresented at all levels. In addition, 2022 Leadership Academy attendees will gain insights into the importance of mindfulness and resilience in their daily lives and insights into how a mindful practice will increase opportunities for advancement in the workplace. Through interactive presentations, attendees will leave with skills to manage difficult conversations, to create opportunities for growth and development, and to effectively navigate stereotypes that create barriers for advancement.
