Washington Leadership Institute Mission

The mission of the Washington Leadership Institute is to recruit, train, and develop minority and traditionally underrepresented attorneys for future leadership positions in the Bar and community. Our goal is to have a class that reflects the full diversity of our state, which includes race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and geographic location.
