Washington, DC [CapitalWirePR] January 24, 2013 – The National Hispana Leadership Institute’s (NHLI) Executive Leadership Program (ELP) fellows are set to begin their one-week intensive training with the John F. Kennedy School of Government Executive Education Program at Harvard University. NHLI recently celebrated 25 years of collaboration with Harvard Kennedy School.
“The caliber of leaders that come through the NHLI program is outstanding. We are proud to have been a part of this important program for 25 years. We value our relationship with NHLI, and look forward to many fruitful years of working together in the future,” said Debra Iles, Associate Dean for Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education.
Harvard Kennedy School will run the National Hispana Leadership Institute Fellows program from Monday, January 21 through Friday, January 25, 2013. The program focuses on effective change through public policy and management. Harvard Kennedy School faculty will lead a series of interactive classes on leadership, strategic management, negotiation and presentation skills. The Fellows will work in groups discussing and receiving consultation on a specific leadership challenge that they brought with them.
The Executive Leadership Program is NHLI’s flagship program. Fellows receive training over an 11 month period, focusing on training, mentorship and leadership projects. The fellows began their training in Washington, D.C. After completion of Harvard Kennedy School’s curriculum, they attend a leadership development program at the Center for Creative Leadership.
