Dr. Gloria Coronado of the Public Health Sciences Division has been named a 2009 fellow in the National Hispana Leadership Institute's Executive Leadership Training Program. Coronado will join 22 women selected from 150 applicants to participate in a four-week training program that spans nine months and implementation in four different cities in the United States. Held in conjunction with the JFK School of Government at Harvard University and the Center for Creative Leadership, the program will focus on public policy, leadership, strategic management, team building and race, class and gender issues with the goal of fostering Latina leadership at the highest level of corporate, government and nonprofit management.
Coronado and the other fellows, from a diversity of backgrounds, were tapped for their commitment to the Hispanic community and community service.
The NHLI was established in 1987, in response to the U.S. Department of Labor's Glass Ceiling Initiative, which seeks to increase representation of minorities and women at the mid and senior levels of public and private management sectors.
