Latinas in Leadership Institute (LiLi)

Latinas & Power Corp has created a Latinas in Leadership Institute which will offer a Women’s Leadership & Advocacy Certificate designed for early career and mid-career Latinas in the workplace and in business with a desire to level-up in their organization/business and enhance their leadership or advocacy abilities.

Before embarking on this initiative, we conducted surveys and virtual focus groups to understand the current needs of Latinas and what obstacles they face today. We used the research findings to produce an industry-leading report: “The Latina Pathway to Excellence in A Post Pandemic World.”

The report highlighted striking themes surrounding representation: cultural expectations, a need for champions, imposter syndrome, visibility, and the benefits and challenges of operating in a virtual environment.

In response, we have created an initiative called the Latinas in Leadership Institute (Lili).
