Currently, fewer than 3% of Latinos serve on nonprofit boards in Silicon Valley. We see that as an urgent call to action. Our Latino Board Leadership Academy recruits, trains and guides Latinos to serve on local boards—an essential step to ensuring that invaluable and underrepresented voices are heard.
If you are a Latino professional interested in making a difference in Silicon Valley and you have considered supporting a nonprofit organization with your talents, the Latino Board Leadership Academy (LBLA) may be for you!
Are you a nonprofit seeking help with recruiting board members? LBLA Board Match Night is an opportunity for representatives from nonprofits to meet LBLA fellows who are eager to serve on a nonprofit board. It’s a great opportunity to learn about each other and evaluate a potential fit.
Our leadership development academy reflects the importance of diversifying non-profit board governance, ensuring Latino voices are heard and included in decision-making processes, and contributing to a more diverse and inclusive nonprofit sector.
