Texas Womens Foundations Leadership Forum Virtual Series, presented by AT&T, elevates and celebrates the voices of women leaders, and presents the Maura Women Helping Women and Young Leader Awards to exemplary trailblazers in our community. Kathleen LaValle became president and CEO of Dallas CASA in 2014 following three decades of practicing law. Today she leads the largest CASA program in the country in terms of total children served by volunteers, number of volunteer advocates and annual revenue, with 83 percent of the volunteers being women. In 2019, Dallas CASA and its nearly 1,500 volunteer advocates served more than 3,500 children in foster care. While a partner with Jackson Walker LLP, LaValle headed the womens initiative, served on the firm-wide diversity committee, and explored solutions to workplace challenges that women faced. She mentored and coached many young women attorneys, and the firm promoted more women to partnership than any other Texas law firm.
