LCDA's Annual Meeting Focused on Trending Governance Topics,
featuring CEOs, Board Directors, and C-Level Executives Across
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2, 2023
/PRNewswire/ -- The Latino Corporate Directors Association (LCDA)
brings its flagship event, LCDA's 8th Annual Board Leaders
Convening, to the Lone Star State for the very first time. The
Convening is the largest gathering of Latino business leaders at
the pinnacle of corporate leadership and governance, and this
year's event promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Taking place from November 1-3,
2023, in the vibrant city of Plano, Texas, the Annual Convening is set to
make an impact, hosted by Toyota Motor North America, Inc.
and presented by KPMG, two organizations known for their
unwavering commitment to expanding opportunities for all and for
their dedication to diversity and inclusion.
LCDA Chair Elizabeth
Oliver-Farrow expressed, "Bringing LCDA's 8th Annual Board
Leaders Convening to Texas is a
momentous occasion. Texas, which
for the first time is mostly Hispanic, and boasts a dynamic
business landscape, is the perfect setting to celebrate and drive
Latino leadership in corporate governance. This Convening
underscores our commitment to promoting equity and inclusion at the
highest levels of corporate leadership."
A highlight of the Convening will be the prestigious Corporate
Visionary Awards Reception and Dinner. We are thrilled to honor
this year's Corporate Visionary awardees: Bank of America,
Biogen, Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco (FHLBank), General
Mills, and Ulta Beauty. This award celebrates companies
with two or more US Latinos on their boards.
Recently, there has been a notable shift in recognizing the
importance of inclusivity and cultural awareness as an effective
business growth strategy. Yet, despite Latinos being the
second-largest population group, with 62.5 million Americans and a
$3.4 trillion consumer force, they
remain the least represented on corporate boards, emphasizing the
crucial need for two or more Latinos on boards.
