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.

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.
