The Latina Leadership Academy, Led by Founder and CEO Dr. Yasmin Davidds, in Strategic Partnership with the California Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, USC Marshall School of Business and the USC Latino Alumni Association is now accepting applications for the 2015 Latina Global Executive leadership and Entrepreneur Program


The Latina Leadership Academy, a division of the Women's Institute of Negotiation, in partnership with the California Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business and the USC Latino Alumni Association is accepting applications for its 2015 highly acclaimed Latina Global Executive Leadership and Entrepreneur Program. It is the first program in the country to approach critical leadership skills from a gender-based, cultural and global

perspective.


The program, in its second year, embraces the principles used in Harvard's groundbreaking Authentic Leadership program 
and is designed for high potential mid to senior level Latina leaders who are looking to become more effective leaders and take on greater leadership challenges. Admittance to the program is competitive. Selected Latina leaders immerse

themselves in lectures, interactive exercises and leadership diagnostics, exploring critical leadership skills, including negotiation effectiveness, power and relationships, social networks, influencing across cultures, persuasive communication and adaptive leadership.


The program’s corporate faculty showcases some of the most powerful Latinas in Corporate America. Qualifications to join the prestigious line up of influential Corporate Latina faculty are numerous including being the highest ranking Latina in a fortune 500 company. Dr. Yasmin Davidds, founder and CEO of the Latina Leadership Academy states, “The programs objective is to unite, empower and develop the top 1% of Latina Leaders in America. Our Latina corporate faculty members are the programs greatest asset. Not only are they some of the highest ranking Latinas in Corporate America, each of them represent the essence of authentic leadership and are committed to the development of our future Latina leaders .”

Graduates of the program have described the process as a life-changing experience. Araceli Almazan, a litigation attorney for Stephenson, Acquisto & Colman and 2014 graduate of the program states, “Words can't describe how amazing this program is, from the curriculum to the breadth of knowledge Dr. Davidds has and all the facilitators possess, this program is unmatched.  The format is unique because it incorporates different teaching methods that emphasizes the importance of hard and soft skills in leadership all while employing an interactive approach that makes this curriculum come to life. Without a doubt, this program is absolutely amazing."


The Latina Leadership Academy is expanding its programming in 2015 to include a program path exclusive for Latina entrepreneurs and partnering with the U.S. Small Business Administration and the U.S. Latina Entrepreneurs Chamber of Commerce. Focused on unlocking the growth potential and job creation opportunities for Latina small businesses in California, the Latina Entrepreneur Path's goal is to bring the Latina community greater access to business education, financial capital, and business support services. The program's curriculum develops Latina entrepreneurial leaders, systematically teaching them skills needed to evaluate opportunity and risk and provide them with mentors who will guide them through the development of their business growth plan.
