News & Events
Congratulations to the Pro Bono Counseling Project’s Executive Director, Barbara Anderson, for being accepted into Leadership Maryland. Leadership Maryland, an independent statewide leadership program to develop informed senior-level leaders, was created in 1992 to cultivate the interest, the statewide knowledge and the leadership capacities of Maryland’s leaders. Fifty accomplished and diverse leaders are selected for the program annually by their peers. They represent businesses, education, government, nonprofits and labor unions. The goal of Leadership Maryland is to ensure that each class includes diversity in ethnicity, age, gender, industry, and geography. It is this diversity of opinions and perspectives that makes the program meaningful and rewarding. Barbara is looking forward to this exceptional opportunity to promote the Pro Bono Counseling Project with some of the top leaders in Maryland.
