Emerging Leaders, You Got Next

This innovative 6-month program focuses on readying early tenured C-Suite executives for more advanced executive leadership roles within healthcare organizations. Patterned after TLN’s highly successful Healthcare Board Initiative (HcBI), participants gain insights from Black pioneers in healthcare senior leadership into how to leverage opportunities for advancement and avoid the “hiding in plain sight” phenomenon.

TLN uses its proven P3 approach to prepare emerging leaders for advancement in C-Suite positions through education, training and executive coaching; position them for greater visibility within the industry through access to an influential network of individuals and corporate partners; and promote them for viable C-Suite positions in healthcare.

Research has shown a correlation between healthcare provider diversity and better care for disadvantaged communities. With new awareness of health disparities experienced by communities of color, organizations increasingly seek leaders whose life experiences inform their approach to solving unequal access to quality care. TLN urges healthcare organizations of all kinds to encourage qualified executives to apply for the Emerging Leaders program.

Recent TLN research found that out of the 40 largest healthcare organizations across four industry sectors, only 8.5% were led by Blacks, none of whom were women.

The Curriculum:

  • Two full-day leadership forums with industry experts 
  • Two networking events with TLN Healthcare Board Initiative cohorts 
  • Webinars tailored to the needs of Emerging Leaders 
  • Small-group executive coaching sessions with successful, veteran Black executives

$750 program fee includes one year TLN membership.

The next class is scheduled for Fall (2021) and limited to the first 25 qualified participants.
