LCDEF BoardReady Institute (BRI)
The LCDEF‘s premiere BoardReady Institute (BRI) is a comprehensive set of exclusive, programs, in-person and virtual, uniquely designed to prepare and position new and aspiring directors for boardroom success. There is no other programming of this scope focused on accelerating the preparation, development, and placement of highly credentialed, Latinos who are aspiring, new, and board-experienced directors onto the highest levels of corporate governance.
The BRI curriculum's takes a comprehensive approach to educate, prepare and position executives for success. It was originally developed in collaboration with the KPMG Board Leadership Center, the Rock Center for Corporate Governance at Stanford Law School, Boardspan, and LCDA‘s search firm strategic partners - like Egon Zehnder, Heidrick & Struggles, Diversified Search - to assist candidates on their journey to and in the boardroom. Since then, our list of curriculum partners has grown to include UC Hastings' Center for Business Law, Equilar, Diligent, Spencer Stewart, Goldman Sachs, Carlyle, Above Board and many others.
Our program offerings have also expanded. The in-person BRI programming offers LCDA members two concurrent program tracks: the BRI Core and the next-level BRINext:
The BRI's virtual programming includes Coaching Circles, Mock Board Interviews, and other sessions on timely corporate governance topics. BRI's virtual programming is open to all LCDA Executive Members as part of their member benefits.
All BRI programming is supported by faculty and seasoned directors committed to their success and leveraging the knowledge and resources of their institutions to enhance of their learning and journey to and in the boardroom. Participants of the BRI Core, BRINext and BRI virtual must be members of LCDA. To join LCDA and learn more, click HERE.

Note: The process to get on a publicly traded or private company board can be lengthy and takes time and engagement on the part of the executive. The BRI does not guarantee a board seat, but it does provide executives with strategic advantages and LCDA and its foundation will remain committed to their boardroom success years after completion of the program.
