Who We Are

The Latino Corporate Directors Association (LCDA) is a new and dynamic association that has been fully operational since 2016. LCDA is comprised of US Latinos that serve on publicly traded or large privately held company boards, as well as C-level aspiring directors. It convenes accomplished Latino executives at the highest levels of corporate leadership who are committed to paying it forward and advancing the mission to develop, support and increase the number of US Latinos on corporate boards. Our model is focused on expanding opportunities and lifting up the next wave of Latino directors. 

LCDA envisions being the preeminent association of US Latina and Latino corporate directors and a trusted source for US corporations and search firms seeking board talent. To that end, we are at the forefront in preparing Latinos for board service and promoting them onto boardrooms. LCDA members occupy more than 30% of the board seats held by Latinos on Fortune 1000 companies. We have more than 250 members who hold seats on publicly traded and privately held boards including Target, HP, Ford Motor Company, CBS, Honeywell International, Southwest Airlines, Levi-Strauss, Bank of America, Ryder, AutoZone, Archer Daniels Midland, and Cinemark, to name a few. 

Currently, LCDA offers two membership categories, Director and Executive, and provides services and programming that empower Latino directors and aspiring directors to lead with confidence and excellence in the boardroom.

What We Do

LCDA serves as a resource to corporate boards, search firms, private equity, and institutional investors interested in gaining access to exceptional Latino board talent.

Our program areas focus on growing the supply of high-caliber boardroom candidates and providing quality corporate governance programming for experienced and aspiring directors. We focus on three strategic areas:
  • Grow the Supply: Provide programs designed to identify, prepare, and grow the pool of Latino board-qualified candidates.
  • Grow the Demand: Work with strategic partners and influencers to increase opportunities for a greater number of talented Latinos to serve on corporate boards.
  • Raise Awareness: Convene directors and leading authorities to promote excellence in corporate governance and promote thought leadership on board diversity.
