Power in Participation


Mission: Latinos LEAD promotes more inclusive and effective civil society organizations by preparing and recruiting Latinos for nonprofit board leadership; helping nonprofit organizations to develop governing boards that reflect their constituents; and, collaborating with partners to increase ethnic diversity in nonprofit governance.


Driving Real Change in Nonprofit Governance - Now!

Latinos LEAD is a 501(c)(3) independent nonprofit organization that was founded in April 2017 following comprehensive strategic planning, industry research, and input from a national network of Latino leaders and nonprofit executives. This process informed the Latinos LEAD Theory of Change, which led to the development of three pilot programs:

1: Ready to LEAD

Nonprofit governance training for Latino professionals

2: Pathways to LEAD

Recruiting Latino nonprofit governing board members

3: Inclusion Readiness Intake

Laying a foundation for successful recruitment and retention
