Children's Healthcare CEO Donna Hyland to Speak Sept. 21 in IMPACT Series

Donna W. Hyland, president and CEO of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, will discuss "Leading for Children" at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 21 in the IMPACT Speaker Series.

Hyland's lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held in LeCraw Auditorium of the College of Management building (800 West Peachtree Street).

Organized by Georgia Tech's Institute for Leadership and Entrepreneurship, the weekly IMPACT Speaker Series brings notable business executives, high-tech entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and intellectual leaders to the College.

For 25 years, Hyland has helped shape the delivery of healthcare to children in Georgia and beyond. In 2007, realizing that Georgia's pediatric population was significantly growing, Hyland led the development of the Children's Vision 2018 Strategy, which defines her organization's journey to achieve clinical excellence by focusing on three areas: research, teaching and wellness.

For all her work in pediatric healthcare, Hyland was named Georgia Trend magazine's Most Respected Business Leader in 2011 and one of Business to Business magazine’s 2007 Women of Excellence. Hyland has the distinct honor of being the only female CEO among the top 25 hospitals in Atlanta.

During fall 2011, other speakers in the IMPACT series will include Bill Rogers, president and CEO of SunTrust Banks; and Paul Raines, CEO of Gamestop. For the full lineup, visit the IMPACT Website
