We asked Diego what he thinks is important and valuable in participating in the NHLA Emerging Leaders Program.
“I think it is important to be part of an inclusive environment Emerging Leaders aims to create. Where leaders can build relationships, expand knowledge and develop professionally. Emerging Leaders can provide participants with opportunities across different organizations.”
“Diego is so energetic and ambitious and we are very fortunate to have him involved in NHLA and our Emerging Leaders activities,” states NHLA President Diane Gandy. “Diego has a lot of ideas for this year’s events and resources; we know everyone will be excited to be involved.”
