Latinos LEAD (Latinos for Leadership Excellence And Diversity) is launching the second phase of its initiative to collaborate with climate and conservation nonprofit organizations to increase the racial and ethnic diversity of their governing boards. This initiative is supported by grants from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and a grant from an anonymous donor-advised fund.
During this phase of the initiative, Latinos LEAD will provide a free, virtual Inclusion Blueprint workshop for the leadership teams of as many as ten climate and conservation nonprofit organizations. This workshop will provide specific, measurable, and practical tools for defining inclusion goals and recruiting and retaining Latino governing board members. Organizations that successfully complete this workshop are eligible for reduced-fee governing board member recruiting services from Latinos LEAD.
