ASU Prof Named to Leadership Texas Class
January 31, 2013
Now in its 31st year, Leadership Texas is the flagship program of the Texas-based Women’s Resources nonprofit corporation headquartered in Dallas. It is designed to help women become better, more informed leaders in Texas communities, organizations and corporations.
Williamson and 91 other Texas women will participate in the year-long leadership development program that will take them to four Texas cities. They will receive information from experts, government officials and other leaders to apply to their work and community.
Theme for the 2013 program year is “The Future of Texas is Now: From Local to Global.” Participants will visit Dallas, Bryan/College Station, Galveston and Austin to observe each city’s opportunities and challenges, and help them understand the changes in Texas’ economy, education and environment.
Participants are selected from a pool of applicants based on their public or private sector endeavors; volunteer experience; professional, education and personal backgrounds; and differences across geography, perspective and leadership direction. Since its inception, more than 3,000 women have participated in the program.
Williamson joined the ASU curriculum and instruction faculty in 2009 and focuses her research on at-risk students, literacy strategies and diversity in the classroom.
