The awards keep rolling in for Nancy Schlichting, CEO of Henry Ford Health System, as she will receive the Harvard Business School Club of Michigan 2012 Leadership Award this Wednesday at a fundraising dinner event in Detroit.

“Ms. Schlicting is a shining example of the good that can be accomplished from both a business and community perspective when outstanding leaders are in charge,” said Richard Shapack, chair of the Harvard Business School Club of Michigan in making the announcement.

Under Schlichting’s direction, Henry Ford Health System, a $4.2 billion healthcare organization with 24,000 employees, also won the enviable Malcolm Baldridge Quality Award in 2011, which is like an Oscar for corporations and organizations across America.

Only a handful of Baldridge awards are given out each year.

The Harvard dinner event is a fundraiser for the club to send promising CEOs from Metro Detroit non-profits to a summer training program.

The club has sent area CEOs to the program since 1999.

“The Harvard Business School Club of Michigan supports the Harvard Business School mission to train business leaders to make a difference in their communities,” Shapack added.

The Harvard Club dinner event will be held Wednesday at the Atheneum Suites Hotel in Detroit. Tickets are $125. To register visit hbsmi.org.
