In an effort to expand the diversity of future leadership within the philanthropic sector, Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP), with support from the American Express Foundation and the Cleveland Foundation, announces the year two cohort for its Next Generation Latino Philanthropy Leadership Program.

A 34-year-old U.S.-based nonprofit, HIP’s mission is to strengthen Latino equity, leadership, and voice to build a more equal and prosperous America and Latin America. HIP launched the Next Generation Latino Philanthropy Leadership Program in late 2015 with the goal of supporting the development of emerging Latino philanthropic leaders, and to ultimately increase diversity in philanthropy and across the social sector.

After receiving nearly 100 applications, HIP recently named the Leadership Program’s second cohort of 55 Fellows: professional women and men hailing from 16 states as well as Washington, DC, working in philanthropy, the nonprofit sector, and government.

The Next Generation Latino Philanthropy Leadership Program is largely web-based, connecting these emerging leaders over the course of six months via webinars, online meetings, and through a virtual community. The program’s aim to diversify the field of philanthropy is accomplished by providing emerging Latino leaders with trainings and mentoring opportunities focused on building their leadership and networking skills.

It is with great pleasure that we announce this year’s cohort of talented, vibrant, forward-thinking Latino leaders as they come together to advance the equity and voice of our communities throughout the United States,” said HIP President Diana Campoamor...
