  • Alejandra Barcenas Excited to Join Esteemed Group of Latina Lawyers at the HNBA Latina Leadership Academy
    August 31, 2020

    On September 15, 2020, Associate, Alejandra Barcenas, will join fellow Latina lawyers from across the country and from all areas of the profession in attending the 2020 Hispanic National Bar Association Latina Leadership Program. Each year, during the HNBA/VIA Annual Convention, the Latina Commission offers professional development and leadership training programs aimed at Latina lawyers. The Latina Leadership Academy offers curriculum specifically developed for Latina attorneys and draws from a significant body of research from both the Commission and other leading organizations. The program addresses areas identified as key to shattering glass ceilings and securing the advancement and long-term success of Latina lawyers—the most underrepresented group in the legal profession. 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.
