Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
The National Hispana Leadership Institute (NHLI) is pleased to celebrate its 25-year collaboration with the John F. Kennedy School of Government Executive Education Program at Harvard University.
NHLI’s flagship training, the Executive Leadership Program (ELP) allows Latinas the opportunity to participate in a week-long training seminar at Harvard Kennedy School. In the last 25 years, over 500 Latinas have advanced their careers, improved their futures and flourished from NHLI’s symbiotic relationship with Harvard Kennedy School.
NHLI’s Acting President Barbara J. DesMarteau is enthusiastic to continue this important and beneficial alliance. “NHLI’s 25-year partnership with Harvard University should be acknowledged and celebrated. It has been a key component in our ELP program, and it is this fundamental week at Harvard University that has inspired so many fellows throughout the years.”
“We are honored to work with NHLI and to be part of this very impactful leadership program. The remarkable leaders we have worked with through the years are making an important difference in their communities and across the country,” said Debra Iles, Associate Dean for Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education. “We look forward to many more successful years together.” By providing high caliber training and education together, NHLI enables its alumnae to effectively and proactively better their communities.
Founded in 1987, NHLI has trained and empowered more than 10,000 Latina leaders from the public and private sectors who have been appointed to leadership positions in government, corporate America, nonprofits, foundations or have started their own businesses. NHLI’s mission is to develop Hispanas as ethical leaders through training, professional development, relationship building, and community activism. http://www.nhli.org.
