More than ever, it is critical for Latinos to move into positions of power and influence to change our systems to support the Latino community to live to its fullest potential. HIP’s Líderes Fellowship empowers a new generation of Latinos to do just that.
Through the program, a diverse group of mid-career professionals from the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors — including indigenous, Afro, women, and LGBTQI Latinos — gain the knowledge, skills, and networks to thrive. HIP recruits Líderes who have the courage to work in the complexity of the intersections in which we all live, including race, class, education, gender identity, ability, etc. The interactive program includes:
* An in-person orientation focused on building collective power through new professional relationships
* Learning sessions that build an understanding of systemic racism and support individual and collective agency in changing oppressive systems
* Creation of collaborative environments between potential funders and change-makers
* Initiation into a national Latino leadership network
