Corporate Visionary Awards
THE LCDA CORPORATE VISIONARY AWARDS
The Corporate Visionary Awards recognize forward-looking companies dedicated to advancing Latino representation on their corporate boards. The awardees are distinguished by having at least two US Latinos serving on their boards, demonstrating a commitment to diversity and inclusion. The award ceremony takes place during the LCDA Corporate Visionary Award Reception & Dinner, a highlight of the Annual Board Leaders Convening. By celebrating these trailblazing companies, the initiative aims to inspire and drive positive change across the business landscape, fostering a more inclusive and equitable future.
To be considered for the award, the company must have a minimum of two directors who identify as Hispanic/Latino, must be a publicly-traded US company on a major US exchange (Nasdaq or NYSE) or a privately-held US company with more than $250mm in annual revenue including mutual funds and pension systems, and must be in operation for a minimum of five (5) years.
The committee will consider additional factors in the final selection of awardees including a demonstrated commitment to mentoring and promoting Latinos to C-Suite and executive leadership positions, support of LCDA or other Latino serving organizations, and companies who include an LCDA member as a board of director.
Awardees are required to have their company's top leadership, including the CEO, Chair, Lead Director, or Nom/Gov Chair, available to accept the award at the Corporate Visionary Award Reception and Dinner on November 2, 2023, in Plano, TX.
