Leadership Texas

Leadership Texas is a program of the Foundation for Women’s Resources, which provides education, travel, and study opportunities to Texas women leaders seeking to improve their leadership skills and expand their knowledge of diverse issues impacting the state of Texas. 

“Leadership Texas has been a fantastic opportunity for me to broaden my understanding of those issues that are molding the future of Texas.  It has enabled me to leave the borders of the university and network with the women who will be leading our state and country through the challenges that we will face.  The inspirational journey that IS Leadership Texas has given me a foundation for making UNT more forward-thinking while at the same time given me the tools to enhance myself and my community.  Let Leadership Texas be part of your green light to greatness – apply for the next class.” Dr. Nandika D’Souza
