HIP Announces Second-Year Cohort for Next Generation Leadership Program

By Michael Gonzalez

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. “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. A full list of the 2017 cohort of HIP Next Generation Latino Leaders can be found below.

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.

Mandatory activities include participation in a number of webinars and discussions covering a variety of topics related to personal and institutional leadership. Other activities include participation in HIP’s 2017 Leadership Conference and an opportunity for mentorship by a Latino foundation CEO or Trustee. HIP is also offering a limited number of scholarships for Fellows to attend its 2017 Leadership Conference & HIPGiver Gala in San Francisco, California on March 23, 2017.
