Two New Video Podcasts Added to Bar Association Leadership Series

A pair of new video podcasts have been added to the Bar Association's Leadership Video Series. The Leadership Video Series features prominent Philadelphians discussing their roles as leaders, revealing who inspired them as leaders, and outlining what kind of leadership the city needs right now.

The new interviews feature Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey and Councilwoman Maria D. Quiñones-Sánchez. Both newcomers to the their roles — Ramsey recently took the reins of the city's police department following a six-year stint as head of the Washington, D.C. police, and Quinones began her first term as the 7th District Councilwoman in January — they spoke to the Bar Association about their leadership styles and about leaders who have inspired them.

For both, family members played a strong role. Ramsey cited his father's work ethic as a guiding principle and Quiñones-Sánchez credits her mother with offering life-long support.
