Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2014
On March 17-18, Center for Hispanic Leadership (CHL), which has successfully helped thousands of Latino professionals to accelerate their advancement in the workplace, will hold its flagship, Discover Your Hispanic Leadership Impact and Influence workshop, sponsored by New York Life and hosted at City of Hope, in Duarte, California.
Across all industries, Hispanics are eager to embrace their cultural values as a means to awaken 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. Says Rafi Rodriguez, CHL Senior Consultant, “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. Our program has proven to advance careers and accelerate leadership roles.”
"New York Life is pleased to champion the professional development and advancement of Hispanic talent by sponsoring the CHL workshop," says Joanne Rodgers, Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, New York Life.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, by 2018 Hispanics will comprise 18% of the labor force. With such fast growth, organizations, corporations, and universities will need to better prepare Hispanics with culturally-relevant education and training in order to increase the talent pipeline of 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 Glenn Llopis, CHL CEO/Founder, Forbes business leadership contributing writer, and go-to-authority on Hispanics, who will also lead the workshop in March. “CHL has shown through its proven cultural characteristics framework that when Hispanics fully leverage their cultural values, they ultimately become more successful because they enable the natural ways they think, act, and innovate to lead more effectively and authentically.”
According to a January 2014 Harvard Business Review article which noted a Research Now survey of Hispanic workers in the United States, “Nearly 85% said that ‘feeling I am on the steady road to success, getting the training and development I need along the way’ is important in creating excitement and engagement at work.” It is for the reasons outlined in the HBR article that CHL workshops have delivered overwhelmingly positive outcomes for countless Fortune 500 companies and deeply resonated with employees across the country.
At the CHL workshop, which will provide more than 20-hours of in-person and pre-work instruction, participants will learn how to harness their cultural roots as a source of strength for career advancement.
