    Jennifer Treviño is the Executive Director of Leadership Fort Worth (LFW) and a graduate of LeadershipClass 2009. The mission of LFW is to educate, empower and connect diverse leaders for a vibrant, sustainable community. Founded in 1972, Leadership Fort Worth is based on the concept of community trusteeship, which challenges leaders to commit themselves to making their communities better places to live. Leadership Fort Worth trains and develops over 150 community leaders each year through three adult leadership development programs, a program for eighth graders, and a forum for continuing education, networking and service opportunities for LFW alumni.

    Jennifer serves on the TCU Neeley School of Business Management & Leadership Department Advisory Board and the Strategic Planning Committee for United Way of Tarrant County. She is also a member of the Fort Worth Chapter of the Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas (HWNT), DFW Hispanic 100, and the Women’s Policy Forum. In the past she served on the Zoning Commission, City Plan Commission, Planned Parenthood Community Advisory Board and Tarrant Transit Alliance Board as well as Fort Worth’s Race & Culture Task Force.

    Jennifer has called Fort Worth home for 21 years after marrying a native Fort Worthian, Chris Treviño. They share their home with their 2 dogs – Sandy and Lolo. In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys following the Dallas Mavericks, working in her yard, seeing favorite musicians in concert, enjoying good food with family & friends, and traveling.

    Sara Fairley-Luna is the LeadershipClass and LeadingEdge Program Director for Leadership Fort Worth and a 2022 40 under 40 recipient from Fort Worth Business Press.

    Before joining LFW, Sara began her career as a Case Manager for Refugee Services at Catholic Charities Fort Worth, which motivated her to learn about transforming conflict and understanding peacebuilding tactics. Following graduate school, she moved overseas and spent a year living in a Monastery in Myanmar, developing, and disseminating training curricula for adult learners. Sara returned to Fort Worth, in 2018 to support a local political race and to bring meaningful and impactful change to her hometown.

    Most recently, she was the Chief Social Programs Officer with RAICES, one of the largest legal nonprofits in Texas, where she created a department, launched three new social service programs, increased case management capacity, and invested in the leadership of her team.

    Sara believes relationship building is central to leadership. Sara always brings a sense of curiosity with her personally and professionally and is an avid reader, dabbles in creative projects, loves visiting and supporting local art in Fort Worth, and researching Fort Worth History. She is proud wife and mother, to an 8-year-old son who is non-verbal with Autism Spectrum Disorder. She holds her Bachelor’s in Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington and a Master’s Degree in Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding.

January Lunchtime Presentation

Change Your LENS:
A model for understanding cultural differences
