As many of you know, the ALPFA Institute (AI) was launched on September 16, 2011 as an operating agreement between ALPFA and the Sam M. Walton College of Business to accelerate our efforts in building Latino leaders worldwide. The vision of the AI is to be the premier source of thought leadership in Latino talent and leadership development, diversity and inclusion, and Women’s leadership. To accomplish this global vision, we understand that it will require new and innovative ways to design and deliver content. For example, in addition to the programs we design and deliver to our clients onsite or at our AI facilities during set dates and times, why not leverage online platforms like a blog to engage subject matter experts (AI) and the practitioners (all of you) to provide content in real time.
Jayshica Amargos, Managing Director of the ALPFA Institute, was recently featured as one of treasures of northwest Arkansas. Ms. Amargos wakes up every morning driven by a passion to inspire, empower, and bring out the full potential in others. As a servant leader she works to encourage others to find their own strengths.
