Our mission has always been to ensure that leadership of tomorrow is reflective of the growing demographic landscape. While that remains our true north, we are setting course to ensure that leadership of today is ready to meet the challenges of the moment. With vision, understanding, clarity, and agility we can lead our teams and our community forward.
Hall of Fame
Latinos have contributed to all facets of life in Colorado for generations. In 2016, the LLI created the Latino Hall of Fame to ensure the Latino Legacy of Leadership is honorably recognized.
The Institute’s 6-month unrivaled Fellowship Program prepares Colorado Latino professionals for elevated leadership roles across sectors and industries.
LLI Fellowship Alumni are leaders across all sectors. Upon completion of our Fellowship Program, Alumni are equipped with the skills required in their leadership roles.
LLI partners with nationally-recognized researchers to share data and provide a deeper understanding of Latinos to prepare organizations for the rapidly changing workforce.
WHY OUR WORK MATTERS
Over the next 20 years, Colorado’s population will increase for its current share of 21 percent to 33 percent. The demographic destiny of Colorado and the U.S. will be characterized by the growing Latino population. In fact, Latinos will have an impact on all aspects of life.
By 2050, Latinos will account for nearly 40% of Colorado's population.
Over the next 5 years Latino's will account for 50% of Colorado's workforce replacement.
By 2020, researchers estimate that Latinos will fuel nearly a quarter of all U.S. GDP growth, and represent 12.7% of the country's total GDP.
Last year, Latinos spent more than $12.3 billion dollars in Colorado.
