HACE’s Nonprofit Leadership Program focuses on the professional and leadership development of Latino serving nonprofits professionals. The purpose of the program is to elevate the skills and abilities of up and coming nonprofit professionals who devote themselves to serving the Latino communities. The program presents participants with many opportunities for growth within the industry by allowing them to meet with nonprofit leaders and executives, have access to their peers’ networks, and have the chance to serve on boards, committees, etc. Further, participants who completed the course were eligible for three graduate studies credit hours from National Louis University. Examples of sessions include “Working Towards Impact” and “Strategic Management Leadership”.
Companies who participated in the program are driven to assist the Latino and diverse communities along with retaining a strong talented pipeline of professionals looking to carry out these goals. “We’ve used this course to advance our careers, learn to network, be a greater part of an asset to our organizations, and the communities that we service” said Jaime Moctezuma, Norwegian Hospital Patient Experience Officer, “Understanding that our populations of the Latino communities are growing and how we can assist on being better stewards of the community and help our organizations live their missions and visions.”
