Honorable Judge Renee Yanta

         150th Civil District Court          

Conquering Sticky Floors and Glass Ceilings

Look in the mirror, Ladies.   We are the strongest catalyst of growth in the American economy.  At our next meeting, Judge Yanta will dig down into the remarkable opportunities our “business sisterhood” has to be a catalyst for strong business and personal growth.

Attendees will learn:
  1:  The value and efficacy of female  mentorship

  2:  The value and efficacy of female  peership

Judge Renée Yanta (formerly McElhaney) has served as a District Court Judge for four years. Prior to taking the bench, she was an attorney for over 20 years.  As a partner of her law firm, she built a nation-wide appellate and business litigation practice and served as the first woman chair of USLAW, a national legal organization.  Before starting her legal career, Judge Yanta was a public school teacher for 9 years.

Presiding over the 150th District Court, Judge Yanta handles civil litigation, include complex business and construction disputes.  She also has deployed her judicial resources to impact at-risk youth.  With the assistance of the Children's Court, Judge Yanta has innovated PEARLS Court.  This specialized court partners with Girls Inc. (and several other essential social service organizations) to help teen girls in Foster Care, providing "Judge Renée's" strong oversight, mentorship and additional educational support, expanded career opportunities, trauma informed emotional care, and positive role models.  

Judge Yanta's foundational principle is derived from Micah 6:8:  What is asked of us but to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly.
