Inspiring Leaders and Transforming Organizations through Life Changing Work
President & CEO
Aileen Warren joined ICAN as President and CEO in January 2022.
She brings a strong history and connection to the organization, having been involved in various ways since 1996, as an advocate for leadership and professional development. A long-time member of the ICAN Board of Directors, she recently completed her second 6-year term of board service for a total of 12 years and rolled off the Executive Committee of the Board at the end of 2021. An ICAN graduate of the INFLUENCE program, member of the ICAN Leadership Award selection committee, speaker at ICAN events, and Co-Chair of the 2010 ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference mark other notable ICAN engagements.
Warren is a seasoned business executive and community leader, both of which bring immense value to ICAN and its mission to develop inspired, authentic leaders to transform the organizations and communities they serve. She joins ICAN after serving as associate vice chancellor and executive director of human resources for University of Nebraska Medical Center since December of 2014. Her 30+ year career also includes serving as vice president of human resources at First Data (now Fiserv) and in positions at MFS Communications and First National Bank of Omaha. Warren holds a bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, a PHR (Professional in Human Resources) certification and a Certificate in Organizational Development from the Fielding Institute.
Her experience as a human resources professional leading HR functions within businesses, in particular, will bring an important perspective to the work of ICAN which includes serving individuals and organizations of all types in developing leaders for the evolving business and cultural needs of the future, investing in talent pipelines, and engaging in credible and meaningful leadership development programs, conferences and experiences. Strengths she will carry into the position include operational oversight, talent management, training, employee engagement, management consulting, communication, and diversity and inclusion initiatives.
She is deeply rooted in the Greater Omaha Community, with a history of community leadership positions and active service on many boards. Warren’s recent public service includes President of the Women’s Fund of Omaha, the Omaha Home for Boys Board Executive Committee, current service as President of the Omaha Downtown Rotary and member of the Urban League of Nebraska Guild.
Leadership is an art and a science that is mastered over time.
