Clinical Director of the Wellness Center at Olive-Harvey College LaTia Lane and Clinical Director of Richard J. Daley College’s Wellness Center Destinee Miguest have both been named to the Chicago Foundation for Women’s 2024 Willie’s Warriors Leadership Initiative Cohort.

Directors Lane and Miguest join 19 other women and nonbinary leaders from diverse backgrounds and sectors across the city for this cohort. All the cohort participants will partake in eight months of leadership training, networking, and more.

Director Lane is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 10 years of experience working with survivors of trauma and providing individual and group therapy. Director Miguest has a Master of Social Work degree with a focus in alcohol and drug addictions from Loyola University Chicago. Her varied experience has allowed her to work in fields at the intersections of race, mental health, and law.

The cohort is named after civil rights activist, minister, and co-founder of Operation PUSH Reverend Willie T. Barrow who believed in breaking barriers and developing new leaders. The Willie’s Warriors Leadership Initiative elevates Black women leaders and creates a network of women committed to equity and justice in Chicago.
