Attorney Kathleen Kilanowski has been inducted into the inaugural class of WE LEAD: Women Empowered to Lead in the Legal Profession. Created by The Dallas Bar Association, Dallas Women’s Foundation, and the Dallas Women Lawyers Association, the one-year leadership program is designed to address the challenges of high-performing women who have practiced law for 8 to 15 years. The purpose of DBA WE LEAD is to address the unique challenges facing women in the legal profession; to empower, educate and uplift women lawyers to take an already successful law practice to new heights; and to prepare lawyers for active professional leadership within their law firm, the business community and the community at large. Only 24 women were accepted into the inaugural class.
According to a press release from the President of the Bar, “Gender equality in the workplace is imperative—morally, and because equality creates maximum benefit to our communities and economy… It is important for me personally for the Dallas Bar to partner with the DWF and DWLA to uplift, support, and impact women facing their unique challenges in the legal profession.”
In a press release, Program Chair Shonn Brown said, “I am thrilled to chair the WE LEAD program because it is imperative that high-performing women lawyers push through to roles of management and leadership in our firms and corporate legal departments.” The Chair’s statement continues, “The WE LEAD program will arm them with the tools to do just that. Our committee has worked tirelessly to develop a substantive curriculum that can be a game-changer for the 2018 WE LEAD Class.”
