Verizon to Sponsor Center for Hispanic Leadership Two-Day Workshop at Emory University. Discover Your Hispanic Leadership Impact and Influence Workshop Focuses on Helping Latino Students and Professionals Accelerate Their Advancement in the Workplace.

“No other leadership workshop, seminar, or executive program available today speaks more to the power of our Hispanic heritage,” says CHL Atlanta Chapter President, Marisa Salcines, “and leveraging our cultural values as a competitive advantage,”

On March 5 and 6, Emory University Goizueta Business School will host an exclusive Center for Hispanic Leadership (CHL) workshop featuring the center’s flagship curriculum, Discover Your Hispanic Leadership Impact and Influence, which has successfully helped thousands of Latino students and professionals to accelerate their advancement in the workplace. “The collaboration with CHL further augments Emory University Goizueta Business School’s outreach efforts to Hispanic professionals and MBA students by offering access to CHL’s culturally-relevant leadership training development,” says Alicia Sierra, Assistant Dean of Diversity and Community Initiatives for the Goizueta Business School. “We remain committed to further advancing the Hispanic community in Atlanta and developing tomorrow’s future leaders.”    

To ensure the momentum from the Verizon-sponsored workshop continues, upon completion participants will be given exclusive access to CHL’s online Hispanic Leadership Academy (HLA). HLA will support their continuing education and proficiency of CHL’s cultural characteristics framework with the opportunity to receive CHL Level-1 Certification that will further equip them with the tools to tap into their inherent cultural values and ultimately become more effective leaders both professionally and personally.

While U.S. Hispanic professionals are seeking to discover their full potential in the workplace, they are not moving up the corporate ladder and into leadership roles fast enough. Often, this is due to the fact that Hispanics, under corporate culture and peer pressure, choose to downplay their cultural roots and assimilate – believing this to be the right path to career advancement. For decades, Hispanics have battled the gulf between assimilation and authenticity and therefore, have not fully enabled their true workplace performance capabilities, skill sets, and aptitude for advancement. Now, as Latinos become the fastest growing workforce community in the country, it is critical for both universities and corporations to equip their Hispanic students and employees with culturally-relevant education & training, and provide support from mentors in order to cultivate a larger talent pool of high-potential Hispanic employees.

“As the fastest growing workforce in America, it’s now time for Hispanic professionals to be discovered as leaders while elevating their performance capabilities and enabling their unique talents more rapidly,” says CHL Founder, business consultant, and author, Glenn Llopis, who will also be leading the March workshop. “CHL has shown through its proven ‘Hispanic cultural-characteristics framework’ that when Hispanics fully leverage their cultural values as sources of strength, they ultimately become more successful because they begin to enable the natural ways they think, act, and innovate in order to lead more effectively and authentically.”

According to CHL’s research, Hispanic students and professionals are eager to embrace their cultural values as a means to unveil their full potential. Additionally, they are extremely interested in learning how to educate their non-Hispanic colleagues about the Hispanic culture and how it shapes the identity of Latinos. In the quest for achieving their career goals and success, it is this common disconnect and lack of cultural exchange that contributes to the barriers Latino students and professionals face every day as they attempt to cultivate loyal and trustworthy relationships.

“No other leadership workshop, seminar, or executive program available today speaks more to the power of our Hispanic heritage,” says CHL Atlanta Chapter President, Marisa Salcines, “and leveraging our cultural values as a competitive advantage,”
