The Korn Ferry Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) philanthropic organization, is pleased to announce its partnership with the National Association of Latino Healthcare Executives (NALHE).

The Korn Ferry Charitable Foundation’s primary focus is to help people exceed their potential. Whether in the boardroom, the classroom, or in social environments. Initially, that means providing help, support, and inspiration to those who need it most. Some of the philanthropic initiatives provided by the foundation included providing direct relief to those affected by a natural disaster, funding scholarships and programs, and grants to charitable organizations working to enhance our communities.

NALHE was founded in 2005 to increase senior-level Latino/Latina representation in hospitals and health systems in the United States. The organization was created to develop a future workforce of highly talented Latino/Latina healthcare executives who can meet the challenge of delivering and improving healthcare in our diverse communities.

Through this partnership, NALHE members, Latina, Latino, Latinx, and multi-cultural healthcare professionals and executives will participate in the Korn Ferry Charitable Foundation’s Leadership U for Humanity Program.

“Having passionate community partners is a large part of what makes the Leadership U for Humanity program successful. We are pleased that NALHE has chosen to become a partner. Together we look forward to making a positive impact toward supporting and developing Latino leadership in healthcare,” said Jean-Marc Laouchez, Program Leader of the Korn Ferry Charitable Foundation.

The Leadership U curriculum is designed around six leadership principles for today’s challenging world. Leadership development to unite teams through times of change, with trust, communication, and empathy to help you build more robust, stable, inclusive teams for the future. It’s not only about you. But it starts with you. Because what matters now is not only what you become but how you empower your people to become it. In three steps, unite teams through times of change by moving them past fear toward optimism.

“As a professional association for Latinos, we are in tune with societal needs for empowering diverse leaders. Our partnership with Leadership U for Humanity will enable us to connect our members with leadership training and resources towards facing challenges of diversity, equity, and inclusion inherent in organizations across the globe. We are delighted to have the opportunity for our members to learn from an organization whose leadership principles and practices are unparalleled.” said Isabell M. Pacheco, DSc, FACHE, Chief Operating Officer, Interoperability Institute & NALHE Board Member, Chair of NALHE’s Leadership Incubator

NALHE is presenting its fifth annual Leadership Summit, a premier event with a robust agenda of healthcare leaders focused on issues including lessons learned through the pandemic, recovery, workforce recruitment, innovation in care delivery, supply chain, cyber security, DEI and COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on Latino communities. In addition, the event will feature networking and career-building opportunities, including resume review, mock interviews, and expert panel discussions. NALHE will promote this partnership at the Summit.
