Healthcare Executive Leadership (HcEL)

Our mission is to advance the promotion of black executives across the healthcare ecosystem

Designed to ready senior executives for enterprise-level C-Suite roles within the healthcare ecosystem and overcome the ‘hiding in plain sight’ phenomenon. Patterned after the highly successful Healthcare Board Initiative (HcBI), participants gain tools and techniques from industry experts and thought leaders along with key learnings from Black pioneers in executive leadership; to drive transformational change aligned with their organization’s DEI and ESG mission.

TLN research targeting senior leadership within the top 40 healthcare organizations demonstrated that black executives remain in their roles at the VP and Director levels 2x – 3x longer without promotion than their white counterparts. The “Hiding in Plain Sight” phenomenon in this context comes alive as more and more of qualified black executives, are overlooked for promotions within organizations.

Understanding the unique nuances experienced by black executives on their career journey we have tailored the HcEL program to address those distinctions.

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 including ”A View from the C-Suite” 

  • Two networking ‘POSITIONING’ events with HcBI cohorts and sponsoring partners

  • Webinars tailored to the needs of Healthcare Executive Leadership 
  • Small-group executive coaching sessions with successful, veteran Black executives

$3,500 program fee includes one year TLN membership.

The next class is limited to the first 25 qualified participants.
