MDC Professor Selected to Participate in the National Hispana Leadership Institute’s 2012 Executive Leadership Program
Miami, March 19, 2012 -
Emily Sendin, a longtime Miami Dade College (MDC) professor in the Communication, Arts and Philosophy department at the InterAmerican Campus, was recently selected to participate in the National Hispana Leadership Institute's (NHLI) 2012 Executive Leadership Program.
Sendin is one of only 16 Latinas in the nation recently selected to participate in the prestigious program, where she will help mentor young women and help them learn valuable leadership skills.
“We are proud that Professor Sendin was selected to participate in this prestigious program,” said Michaela Tomova, chairperson of MDC’s Communications, Arts, and Philosophy department. “It is a wonderful opportunity and one that will help her to continue growing as a professional.”
NHLI’s rigorous training curriculum consists of sessions that develop participants’ skills in cross-cultural communication, strategic management, public policy and leadership building. The mentorship component commits participants to mentoring at least two young Latina leaders for at least two years.
Additionally, participants will design and complete their own leadership projects that will have a significant impact in the community.
