2019 SCLN Visionaries Awards Honors Outstanding Leadership in Southern California

Center for Leadership

November 20, 2019

On Nov. 20, Southern California Leadership Network (SCLN) held their annual Visionaries Awards. SCLN annually presents awards to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership achievement and celebrates those whose vision has inspired action, collaboration and positive outcomes. This year's event was a festive and inspiring afternoon as SCLN honored Cástulo de la Rocha, President & CEO of Altamed; Zoila D. Escobar, Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer and President of the Altamed Foundation; Kevin Cottrell, the Guido Goldman Director of Leadership Programs at the German Marshall Fund of the United States; and Kim Yamasaki, Executive Director of the Center for Asian Americans United for Self Empowerment (CAUSE). The honorees spoke on a panel discussion, hosted by Lolita Lopez, Investigative Reporter and Anchor for NBC4 Southern California, discussing their sources of inspiration for leadership, differences and similarities in leadership across sectors and leadership advice for attendees.

Following the program, SCLN's alumni, partners and honored guests had the opportunity to network and celebrate, bridging gaps and forming relationships across industries and sectors throughout Southern California.

The Visionaries Awards supports SCLN's work and provides scholarships for deserving individuals who may not otherwise have the financial means to participate in SCLN's game-changing programs. In 2019, SCLN provided more than $10,000 in tuition assistance and scholarships for all three of its programs. Investment in SCLN is an investment in future leaders in the region, state and nation.
