Center for Hispanic Leadership

At Northern Trust, we want our clients and their families to live healthy and financially secure lives.

Irvine, California (PRWEB) October 30, 2013

For more than 124 years, Northern Trust has been a leading provider of asset management, fiduciary, banking, asset servicing and fund administration solutions. Today, as the financial institution seeks to increase its investment in the country’s future, it turns its focus on the rising Hispanic community and the need to increase professionals in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields by sponsoring the Center for Hispanic’s forum, Strengthening the Hispanic Pipeline in Healthcare and Biomedical Fields, on December 2nd at City of Hope in Duarte, California.

According to the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, in order for the United States to remain globally competitive in STEM, the country will need to train 1 million STEM professionals over the next 10 years. “At Northern Trust, we want our clients and their families to live healthy and financially secure lives,” says Paul T. Fujisawa, Vice President, Senior Private Banker at Northern Trust. “We encourage the development of building tomorrow’s leaders, and thus providing future growth for healthy communities.”

As the numbers of Hispanics continue to increase, more Hispanic leaders and role models in all industries are needed, but particularly in healthcare for two major reasons: 1) professional healthcare is not necessarily something Hispanics were raised with or see the value in, and therefore they may not seek it out; and 2) the urgency is greater in this industry because the lack of research and outreach to the community directly affects their health and well-being. In a recent Pew Hispanic Center national survey of Hispanics, three-fourths said they need a leader for their community; however, when asked to identify one, about the same number said they could not.

“The numbers speak volumes,” says Glenn Llopis, CHL Founder/CEO, who will moderate the December event. “When the majority of Hispanics in the U.S. cannot name a Hispanic leader coupled with the fact that only five percent of licensed doctors in California are Latino in a state that is nearly 40 percent Hispanic, it’s clear that the conversation around the need to develop leader and a more prominent Hispanic workforce in the healthcare industry is escalating in relevancy.”

With the goal of developing solutions to elevate the opportunities in the healthcare and biomedical professional fields for Hispanics and leveraging government, educational, business, and professional organizations as well as community partners throughout the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles county, the two-hour thought-leadership event will feature an interactive discussion between a panel of senior leaders in the healthcare industry and attendees. At the conclusion of the panel discussion, attendees will then segue to one-on-one discussions with subject matter experts on specific topics such as educational awareness, recruitment, mentoring, networking, career management, and professional development. The session will serve as the first step in building the foundation needed to address the urgency to attract and retain Hispanics in STEM. “We are elevating individual voices for the betterment of the collective whole,” says Marisa Salcines, CHL Director of Business Development and Media Relations. “We’re not just going to talk about the issues, we’re going to solve them.”

Adds Fujisawa, “We have evolved with the changing needs of our clients and our world. Now, it is time to adapt again to the shifting demographics of the country. We urge those in the healthcare and biomedical community to do the same and become part of the conversation.”
