Emerging Leaders Program Kick-Off Event Sparks Enthusiasm and Ideas

2024 Emerging Leaders Program members standing and smiling together

The inaugural class of physician-scientists gathered with Case CCC leadership to celebrate the start of the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP)—an initiative aimed at developing leaders to take Case CCC to and beyond the half-century mark.

The highly competitive selection process identified 10 individuals from across the consortium with leadership potential in the cancer field who would bring to the table diverse perspectives. Sixty percent of the incoming class are female and 30% belong to a racial or ethnic minority group. Emphasis also was placed on traits such as emotional intelligence and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

ELP scholars will spend 18-24 months in interactive face-to-face and virtual courses delivered by Weatherhead School of Management faculty, participate in committees, and gain hands-on leadership experience.

Congratulations to the ELP Class of 2024: Abhishek Chakraborty, Christopher Hubert, Melinda Hsu, Joe Luna, Dan Ma, Eva Selfridge, Natalie Silver, Randy Vince, Monica Wagner, and Yi Zhang.
