Our Mission

The MDFAWL/GSCBWLA Leadership Academy was founded by members of the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association and the Florida Association for Women Lawyers, Miami-Dade Chapter. These members decided to join forces to serve their sister organizations’ respective missions of advancing women in the legal profession. From this idea, a committee was formed to create access to meaningful programming and to address ongoing concerns and challenges faced by aspiring women leaders in South Florida.  The Leadership Academy aims to serve some of the best and brightest aspiring women leaders and inspire them to give back to our community. The Leadership Academy is dedicated to race and gender equality, and hopes to create a legacy of uplifting and serving our community.

We are committed to supporting women in their leadership journey by empowering them to embrace their strengths, overcome their challenges, and serving as accountability partners as they strive to achieve their goals.
