In an effort to improve the leadership potential in each member, we often support the work of other organizations through informing our members of available leadership opportunities outside of CUS. The organizations below are listed as a resource to our members and are not formal partners.
National Hispana Leadership Institute
To address the disparity of representation of Latinas in leadership positions, NHLI, a national 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington, D.C., was created in 1987 in response to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Glass Ceiling Initiative. This seminal study found that while minorities and women were making substantial gains in entering the workforce, they were not equally represented at the mid- and senior-levels of management in government or corporate sectors. The report found that Latinas were also significantly underrepresented on corporate boards and in the nonprofit and political arenas.
