About The OWBF

Formed in 2008, the Ohio Women's Bar Foundation's (OWBF) mission is to research, analyze, compile, publish and distribute educational materials to enable women attorneys and those interested in encouraging women attorneys to become more proficient in their profession with the assistance of their local and national women's bar associations.  The OWBF is a 501 (c)(3).

In its inaugural year, the OWBF developed a Leadership Institute for emerging women attorney leaders.  The Leadership Institute is designed to lend a hand and to help women who are emerging leaders with practical knowledge and strategies on business development so as to attain significant leadership roles.

The mission of the Leadership Institute is to advance inclusiveness
within the legal profession and supplement the professional skills of women lawyers by enhancing their leadership, business development, and communication skills for the benefit of the diverse communities in which they work, live and serve.

The OWBA and OWBF have appointed a nominating committee to review applications, interview qualified applicants, and select candidates to recommend for approval.
