Judith Wawroski, IBC Bank Exec. V.P. Joins Women's Leadership Group
Leadership Women Texas encourages women to be active, intentional business leaders
(April 7, 2020) LAREDO, Texas - IBC Bank Executive Vice President and Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer Judith Wawroski recently joined the prestigious Leadership Women Texas group.
Leadership Women Texas provides educational and development opportunities to Texas women who seek to advance as leaders and expand their knowledge of the diverse dynamics, issues, challenges and opportunities that impact their work, personal lives and communities. The program offers interactive learning opportunities, one-of-a-kind experiences and unique introductions to outstanding communities and individuals across Texas. Only leading innovators and subject-matter experts across a broad spectrum of industry, endeavor, geography and personal backgrounds are chosen to participate.
"I am grateful to IBC Bank and Dennis Nixon for their support of this and other leadership development programs," said Wawroski. "As a mother of a daughter, I understand the importance of being a role model and breaking the mold of traditional roles. As a banker, and particularly in a leadership role, I understand that I am paving a path for other women to be vocal and take risks."
Leadership Women Texas facilitates discussions of leadership competencies and best practices, led by leadership experts and icons across various industries. IBC Bank has been a sponsor and supporter of the program since its inception.
"Half of our bank executives are women," said IBC Bank Chairman and CEO Dennis E. Nixon. "As we've grown our bank over the last 50+ years, that growth and success has been sponsored by our woman leaders. We are very proud of their contribution which is exemplified by leaders like Judith Wawroski."
Leadership Women Texas brings together a broad diversity of women leaders once quarterly who may not otherwise meet, to form a better understanding, long-lasting relationships, an influential network and collaborative opportunities. Other industries represented in this year's cohort include private and public companies, the non-profit sector and institutions of higher education. The theme for the 2020 program year is "Enlightened Leadership for the Future: Leading in the Lone Star State."
"IBC Bank believes it is extremely important to build the team from within," explained Wawroski. "Many IBC Bank leaders have participated in this program before me, and I hope many will participate after me. The goal is to learn, network and come back to the bank with community-conscious, innovative ways to serve our employees, customers and community."
