The afternoon will highlight the NHCC In-School Program, NHCC Journey to Excellence Hispanic Leadership Pipeline, sponsored by Walmart. Frank Alvarez, CEO of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, will be the presenter for this session and will share his story on realizing your full potential and a young Latino leader. NHCC will also be partnering with universities, colleges and this year with two high schools in the area to connect students from the different participating institutions to network, learn from each other, get to know professional Latino leaders and their professional experience, hear testimonials and share insights. Energizing and building the future pipeline of Latino leaders is a commitment that should come from our entire society. Just because Latinos are the fastest growing minority in the United States does not mean Latinos are the only one to build that pipeline. It is the tradition and commitment of NHCC and its member organizations to join together in providing an interactive forum to inspire and encourage young Latinos to accomplish their goals.
The NHCC CEO Forum, "Conversations in the C-Suite" focused on healthcare disparities will be showcased on Thursday, October 4(th). Presenter: George Halvorson, CEO of Kaiser Permanente and Luke Visconti, CEO DiversityInc will lead sessions to discuss the healthcare environment and engage with NHCC members to identify key intersections between the healthcare challenge and the Hispanic/Latino world. Not a day goes by without discussion of healthcare in the news or among leaders in the US. Closing the gap of healthcare disparities needs to be in the forefront of discussion in our society. Industry leaders such as Kaiser Permanente are working to address the ways they are closing the gap in healthcare. Healthcare is more than just an industry; healthcare is uniquely intertwined with economic competitiveness, political and corporate leadership, technology and innovation, education, environmental advocacy, social responsibility, national security, and much more. Our "Conversations in the C-Suite" panelist is: Tony Barrueta, SVP of Government Relations, Kaiser Permanente, Louise McDonald of Herman Miller, President of Healthcare business and David A. Martinez, MD, founder and CEO of CLICKVIEW CORPORATION.
The afternoon will highlight an Interactive Leadership Workshop by Southern Methodist University - Cox School of Business. Presenters: Jerry Magar, founding Director of Organizational Effectiveness with Southern Methodist University and Dr. Frank Lloyd, Associate Dean, Executive Education, will explore best practices on leading through change. This session will explore the premise that regardless of the depth or intensity of change, we as humans react in very predictable ways. You'll learn why the same behaviors that may have been effective in one environment, when transferred to the dynamics of change, can be not just ineffective but downright dangerous. You will learn specific tools to help manage productivity and minimize disruption during times of change. Operating from the belief that change is not just a one-time shot, but a way life...these principles create the capacity for individuals and organizations to not merely survive in the challenging times of change but to thrive in them.
