The North Carolina Bar Association’s Pathways to Inclusion Leadership Academy (Pathways) is designed to provide leadership training to selected attorneys from diverse
backgrounds who aspire to develop the leadership skills necessary to serve state and local organizations and/or underserved communities. Pathways will address the need for
diverse leadership within the legal profession and the greater community, ultimately enhancing the public’s confidence in the profession.
Pathways presents a unique opportunity to develop and enhance leadership skills in a collaborative and supportive learning environment. Through small, interactive sessions,
participants will examine what is expected of leaders, with an emphasis on Bar leadership, and will receive guidance and advice from current leaders on the appropriate activities in which leaders should be engaged to be effective in the legal profession and respected in the community.
