Emerging Executive Program

Emerging Executive Program - Cultivating Leadership

 


About the Program

Since 2014, HITEC has worked to develop the next generation of Hispanic technology leaders through our Emerging Executive Program. To date, 191 fellows have completed the program, advancing their careers and contributing to our growing community. The Emerging Executive Program is the only national program focused on professional development and cultivation of executive talent among the Hispanic technology professionals.

The HITEC Emerging Executive Program is a year-long, cohort-based program that develops emerging and high-potential Hispanic technology leaders looking to become tomorrow’s high level corporate executives. The work of the Emerging Executive Program continues to be central to HITEC’s core mission – to develop future Hispanic technology and business leaders.

A critical enabler of the program's success are our mentors who volunteer their time to HITEC  and share their knowledge and experience with program participants. Mentors (including HITEC Board members) promote a trusting, non-biased mentoring relationship with their fellows.

Along with mentoring, the fellows benefit from:

  • Exposure and interaction with high-level technology executives and business leaders
  • Webinars led by subject matter experts exploring a wide range of topics
  • Guidance on career-related issues, unique to Hispanics in leadership
  • In-depth understanding of how CXOs develop their organizations in terms of core technology competencies and performance metrics
  • Three workshops at each HITEC Summit when possible or virtual event format when needed
  • Development of a network with other rising Hispanic professionals
