Jan. 28, 2016 – University of Houston Law Center Research Professor Allison N. Winnike has been selected to join the 2016 class of Leadership Texas, a network of more than 6,000 women with the goal of broadening their knowledge and developing their skills to have a greater impact on their community.
“I am honored to join such a remarkable group of Texas leaders,” said Winnike, director of research for the Health Law & Policy Institute at the Law Center. “I look forward to further developing my leadership skills with my colleagues in the program and discovering innovative tools to help our community.”
Leadership Texas, now in its 34th consecutive year, is the flagship program of Leadership Women Inc., a nonprofit social enterprise designed to give women a perspective on challenges and opportunities beyond their normal career fields.
“The theme for this year’s program is “The Future of Community: A State of Possibilities.” Winnike and others in the 2016 class of 90 women will explore issues facing four Texas cities, San Antonio, Amarillo, Corpus Christi, and Austin. She will meet with government officials, civic leaders, recognized experts, and others to gain an understanding of cultural, social, and economic issues that affect their communities.
