“We are very excited about the group of professionals who make up the second class of the Latino Leadership Institute,” says Karlos Ramirez, Executive Director of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. “The goal of this program is to develop the next generation of Hispanic leaders for the St. Louis business community. The success of the LLI program was realized with the inaugural class, and we look forward to the same achievement with the incoming group.”
The Latino Leadership Institute will begin in October as a skills-based leadership training program and will consist of nine training sessions conducted each month, which will focus on a particular skill for the developing leader. The Institute will educate and train the participants about for-profit and non-profit management skills, and network development within the St. Louis business community.
In addition to leadership training, participants will be encouraged to give back to the St. Louis region through community involvement. The goal for the Class participants is to develop leadership skills where they can lead an organization, lead oneself and lead others in the organization.
The HCC STL Foundation is proud to have a great title sponsor in Centene Corporation and session sponsors Saint Louis University, Washington University, Monsanto and Eagle Bank and Trust. The participants will graduate from the program in June 2013. Scholarships are available through the HCC STL Foundation for the $1,000 program tuition.
The HCC STL Foundation was created in 2009 to accomplish charitable purposes, focusing on the Hispanic community of the metro St. Louis area. The Foundation's three primary areas of focus are on advancing opportunities to promote education, training and to provide scholarships. For more information, visit www.hccstl.com.
