Latino Board Tracker: Find out which companies have Hispanics/Latinos on their board
LCDA's work is critically needed. The exceedingly low levels of Latinos on boards is unacceptable in 2017, especially when there are qualified Latinos to fill those seats. We need to govern for growth with the future in mind. Board diversity is good for business, makes boards stronger, and reduces group-think.Mary Jo White, Former SEC Chair
LCDA is playing a critical role in changing perceptions and advancing highly qualified Latino directors. "Great work that you are doing here, not only changing the composition of corporate America on boards, but to some degree, the complexion, it is about the insights and thoughts that so many people of different backgrounds can bring.Oscar Munoz, CEO - United Airlines
We have an incredible opportunity to help corporate America, when we get in the room our contributions are going to be even more massive than what anyone expected by giving us a chance.Bernard J. Tyson, Late Chairman & CEO - Kaiser Permanente | 2018 LCDA Corporate Visionary Awardee
