HNBA & VIA Solutions: 3-Prong Approach
For 50 years, the HNBA has acted as a force for positive change, advancing the causes of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession and in communities across the country. Through a combination of educational pipeline, professional development, leadership training, and networking programs, activities, and initiatives, as well as two national conferences, and numerous community outreach efforts, HNBA & VIA empower and advance the educational, professional, and economic development of Hispanics in the legal profession and our communities.
The HNBA/VIA’s efforts include three programmatic approaches to address the needs:
- Su Futuro: Early intervention and mentoring/educational pipeline programs targeting students from elementary school to law school, as well as young lawyers, and providing information, training, and key resources to help them progress through the educational pipeline.
- Su Carrera: Professional, business and leadership development programs assisting underrepresented legal professionals advance in their careers, from landing their first job as a lawyer to achieving partnership or in-house promotions on their way to law firm management, the general counsel’s office, or the C-Suite.
- Su Comunidad: Community education programs and outreach activities that support the HNBA/VIA’s objective of empowering the Hispanic community, and the HNBA’s mission to advocate on issues of importance to the community.
