Here's what former attendees are saying about the Emerging Leaders Program: 

"I really liked the mock interview, the roundtable discussion about politics in respective organizations and how to take control of your performance evaluation. These are skills I’ve applied immediately within my organization.

I truly enjoyed this seminar and the candid content of the material. The setting was great because it allowed for 1-on-1 coaching and mentoring. In a world of rapid change in terms of diversity, this type of seminar is needed to equip minorities who may not have access to this information-and mentoring - otherwise."

Mr. Rashard Johnson, Assistant Vice President of Non-Clinical Support Services, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX

"The EML program is a great opportunity to have “real conversations”. It is comforting to know that there are other minority leaders going through the same challenges. The faculty brought great experiences/case studies into this program.  The conversations were very candid and appreciated due to the small cohort."

 Ms. Trena Burke, Asst. Director of Clerkships & Research, Mt Sinai Hospital/Chicago Medical School
