The growing Latino population has dramatically changed the complexion of the United States and the State of Colorado. By 2050, population estimates predict that one in three Americans will be Latino. In Colorado, more than 21 percent of the population is Latino, with the average age of 26. Yet across all sectors, Latinos are underrepresented in leadership roles. The Latino Leadership Institute (LLI) at the University of Denver (DU) is the nation’s premier professional development program advancing an elite network of Latino leaders. Through its exceptional Fellowship Program, the Institute prepares Latino leaders for the highest levels of influence in the business, education, government, and non-profit sectors. A 501(c)3 organization founded in 2013, the LLI represents an integral part of DU’s Impact 2025 Strategic Plan to collaborate, empower, and lead. Our speaker will be Joelle Martinez, nationally respected non-profit executive, political strategist, and, since 2015, executive director of the Latino Leadership Institute at the University of Denver.
