2022 HNBA/VIA Latina Leadership Academy

For Attorneys Practicing 10 Years Or Less

The Latina Leadership Academy (Academy) offers relevant professional development and leadership training aimed at Latina lawyers who have been in the profession 10 years or less. The Academy’s curriculum builds off the successful programs on Grit and Growth Mindset and delves into concepts of executive presence, cultivating leadership skills, and what it means to be authentic 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 how mindful practice will increase opportunities for advancement in the workplace. Through interactive presentations, attendees will leave with skills to manage difficult conversations, create opportunities for growth and development, and effectively navigate stereotypes that create barriers for advancement. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a highly discounted executive coaching program for an additional 6 months after completion of the Academy.
