Emerging Minority Leaders
“Preparing Emerging Minority Leaders in Health Care for the C-Suite”
The Institute for Diversity in Health Management has launched a new and important program to meet the challenge of leadership diversity in the executive suite.
The "Preparing Emerging Minority Leaders in Health Care for the CEO & C-Level Roles," program is designed to accelerate the preparation of mid-level health care managers and a new generation of leaders to represent the growing diversity of the U.S. patient population.
Driven by evidence-based research of successful CEOs and C-Level leaders throughout U.S. health care and business, the program is designed to meet three overarching needs:
Bridge the knowledge gap often experienced by talented minority leaders as they try to move up the ladder of leadership responsibility;
Anticipate and advance the current role of the CEO by incorporating leading practices from high-performing CEOs in a variety of business settings
Provide personal mentoring and coaching support to launch or enhance each participant's career growth program.
The program will take place May 22 - 23, 2013 at the American Hospital Association offices located at 155 N. Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL.
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."
