Our mission is to change the face of leadership to be reflective of our diverse populace by unlocking the full economic and social potential of people, organizations, and communities.
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.
The Latino Leadership Institute is shaping Colorado’s future by preparing Latino leaders for the highest levels of influence in government, business, philanthropy and non-profit work.
