Verizon Wireless Supports CHL's Professional Development of Hispanic Leaders

“At Verizon Wireless, we believe future leaders are skilled, talented people who represent the global and culturally-diverse society in which we live and do business,” says Sheryl Sellaway, Executive Director– Public Relations Verizon Wireless

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 on March 5 and 6. “At Verizon Wireless, we believe future leaders are skilled, talented people who represent the global and culturally-diverse society in which we live and do business,” says Sheryl Sellaway, Executive Director– Public Relations for South Area at Verizon Wireless. “Our proud support of the Center for Hispanic Leadership workshop aligns with that belief.”

With corporations like Verizon taking the lead on supporting culturally-relevant training for U.S. Hispanics, Hispanics can begin to win the battle between assimilation and authenticity and fully enable their true workplace performance capabilities, skillsets, and aptitude for advancement. CHL research clearly indicates Hispanics are seeking to discover their full potential in the workplace, but they are not moving up the corporate ladder and into leadership roles fast enough. At the CHL workshop, which will provide 16-hours of in-person instruction, participants will learn how to harness their cultural roots as source of strength for career advancement. “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 Glenn Llopis, CHL Founder, business consultant, and author, who will lead the Verizon Wireless-sponsored Emory workshop in March. “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 enable the natural ways they think, act, and innovate to lead more effectively and authentically.”

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, by 2018 Hispanics will comprise 18% of the labor force. With such fast growth, universities and companies will need to better prepare Hispanics with culturally-relevant education and training to order to increase the talent pipeline of Hispanic employees. “If companies do not encourage a cross-cultural pollination workplace with culturally-relevant training to accelerate the performance of Hispanic employees,” adds Llopis, “their company's creativity, R&D, new Hispanic market expansion, and supplier diversity efforts will weaken make them irrelevant in the competitive marketplace.”

Whether in academia or in corporate America, Hispanics 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. To ensure the momentum, upon the workshop completion, participants will be given exclusive access to CHL’s online Hispanic Leadership Academy (HLA) to receive CHL Level-1 Certification – further equipping them with the tools to become more effective leaders both professionally and personally. Says CHL Atlanta Chapter President, Marisa Salcines, “For the Hispanic professional, there is no other executive leadership workshop or conference available today that can effectively provide you with a cultural roadmap to your success like CHL does.”
