Gaby Natale, the triple Emmy-winning journalist, bestselling author and speaker, has partnered with The Estée Lauder Companies (ELC) Hispanic Connections Employee Resource Group.
The collaboration will result in a new leadership development program, called the Leading With High Touch sponsorship program. It is designed to help develop, retain, elevate, and attract senior-level Hispanic and Latinx talent.
This latest effort aligns closely with Natale’s “pioneer spirit,” a concept she often preaches during his many speaking engagements.
“Breaking barriers is at the core of what I do as a speaker, author, and journalist. So, when The Estée Lauder Companies reached out to join their team of thought leaders for their first ever Leading With High Touch initiative to elevate Hispanic/Latinx talent I knew this was a perfect fit for me,” she said in a statement.
“We are creating a lasting legacy that many more will benefit from,” added Natale.
Through the program, participants will engage in lectures, workshops, networking, and opportunities to redefine their growth mindset.
The initiative combines internal and external speakers who will discuss topics ranging from personal branding and negotiating to self-advocacy and well-being.
Natale is one member of a select roster of thought leaders who will train and energize the program's inaugural cohort. As part of the collaboration, Natale will meet the program's participants at ELC’s New York offices for multiple in-person training sessions.
“This program is a dream come true. Gaby is inspiring to all of us,” said Barma Uruchima, co-chair of Leading With High Touch at the Estée Lauder Companies. “We are building the first cohort of Latino Leaders at ELC. Sitting together in a room, starting a network of future Latina leaders, sharing, and co-supporting each other is terrific.”
The Estée Lauder Companies' collective vision is to be the world's most inclusive and diverse beauty company. It aims to be both the employer of choice for diverse talent and the brand of choice for diverse consumers.
The Leading With High Touch program is part of ELC’s ongoing commitment to ensuring all employees have equal access to mentorship programs and sponsorship opportunities.
