Apply for the 2013 Public Interest Latina Leadership Workshop!

Are you a Latina public interest attorney interested in improving your leadership skills for the sake of the communities you serve? Check out this opportunity presented by the Hispanic National Bar Association:

The Hispanic National Bar Association’s Commission on the Status of Latinas in the Profession is sponsoring a Public Interest Latina Leadership Workshop to inspire and train the next generation of diverse leaders in public interest law. In 2010, the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) commissioned a national study, “La Voz de la Abogada Latina: Challenges and Rewards in Serving the Public Interest.” The research findings suggest that Latinas are not well represented in leadership positions in public interest and government organizations and that there is a need to create programs to help minimize barriers to promotion and professional success. The research conducted by the HNBA provides the foundation for this innovative and ground breaking training for Latinas working in the public interest sector.

The Latina Leadership Program is open to attorneys who have been in practice for 5 or more years at legal services, public interest nonprofit organizations, and government positions, including military personnel. Space is limited, so we encourage interested individuals to apply without delay. Additional requirements for eligibility include (a) Good standing in the bar of your current state of admission; and (b) Confirmed membership in the Hispanic National Bar Association- to become a member of the HNBA, click here.

The deadline to submit application is February 8, 2013.
All applicants will be notified by February 15, 2013.
