About The Power of Latino Leadership: Culture, Inclusion and Contribution
There are over 50 million Latinos in the United States, the largest minority group in the country and it’s estimated that by 2050 one in three of the US population will be Hispanic.
What does it take to lead a varied and vibrant people who hail from twenty-two different countries? And what can leaders of all cultures and ethnicities learn from how Latinos lead?
Based on her personal experience as a longtime Latina leader Juana Bordas takes us on a journey to the very heart and soul of Latino leadership. She offers ten principles that guide Latino leaders and features numerous examples of these principles in action.
