LatinoLEAD is a cross-sector consortium of Latinos working together to advance our collective influence, success and power. Our members include corporate, civic, non-profit, business and academic leaders. We strive to increase our knowledge on pressing issues facing Latinos in Minnesota, spotlight successes and cultivate LatinoLEAD as a respected force of influence.
LatinoLEAD is shifting and re-inventing what it means to be Latinx in this state. Progress has been made, but we still have lots of work to do. As our team has engaged with you throughout the year, you have made it quite clear that you want LatinoLEAD to become an even more impactful, influential force, and catalyst for change across Minnesota. We want our organization to continue and expand its role as a hub, connector, facilitator and trusted partner.
Our network strives every day to create and support the infrastructure needed to elevate more Latinx leaders into the highest leadership positions. We want our people running for elected office, advancing to C-suites, creating space for and helping develop our emerging leaders while maintaining the rich history and culture of Latinx across the state.
LatinoLEAD continues to be guided by our values: Leadership, Equity, Achievement, and Development (LEAD). These values are our firm foundation, and also the fertile soil where our work takes root
