National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications Calls for Nominations for the 2013-2014 Class XIII ELDP
Jul 19, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) announced that it is now accepting nominations for its Executive Leadership Development Program (ELDP), presented in partnership with the University of Virginia Darden School of Business.
According to a release, targeting upper middle managers of color (directors with a minimum of two years at that level and above), the 2013-2014 Class XIII will be presented in four sessions, all of which will take place on the Darden Grounds in Charlottesville, Virginia. Spanning a six-month timeframe, the sessions will occur in October and December of 2013, and February and April of 2014.
ELDP, by which the program is known, was created in response to some of the industry's most persistent challenges: increasing the diversity of the industry's executive suites; retention of executives of color; and maximizing the ROI of a diverse workforce in a business environment that demands strategic agility and creative solutions. Emphasizing professional growth, the program addresses the challenges faced by executives of color, while strengthening the business competencies that all executives must have in order to be successful.
"While we think it's very important to consider traditional success metrics as we assess the impact of ELDP's twelve year history," remarked Jim Jones, vice president of Education and Diversity Solutions, NAMIC, "the most potent marker remains the consistent message from over 400 ELDP alumni. In the words of Carla Moore, vice-president, Domestic Network Distribution for HBO and Class XII alumna, 'In addition to the energizing rigors one would expect from a prestigious business school, the curriculum will also take you on a path to discovery and self-awareness about who you are as a leader, as a person…From the moment we walked into the Darden classroom until the last words spoken by professors, we were encouraged to be authentic and trust the process.'"
NAMIC (National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications) is an organization focusing on multi-ethnic diversity in the communications industry.
