Director Linda Chanow to Participate in Leadership Texas Class of 2013

Director of the Center for Women in Law Linda Chanow has been selected to join an elite network of more than 5,000 women as a member of the Leadership Texas Class of 2013. Leadership Texas, now in its 31st consecutive year, is the first statewide program for women’s leadership development. The theme for the 2013 program year is ‘The Future of Texas is Now: From Local to Global.’

“Linda is one of 92 outstanding women leaders competitively selected from across the state to participate in the longest-running women’s leadership development program in the US. Throughout the year-long program, she will have the opportunity to broaden her perspective on our state by exploring four Texas cities and receiving cutting-edge information from renowned experts, government officials and other leaders to positively inform her work and community for years to come,” said Candace O’Keefe-Mathis, the CEO of Women’s Resources.

“Drawing from her nearly 15 years of working to advance women lawyers and to promote greater workplace flexibility in law firms, Linda designed and implemented a cutting-edge program agenda that has garnered national attention,” commented Dean Ward Farnsworth of the University of Texas School of Law on Linda’s nomination to Leadership Texas.
