HNBA Public Interest Latina Leadership Workshop: Nuestra Voz, Nuestro Futuro
Tuesday, February 5, 2013
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
