Yes, there is a Latino Leadership gap in this town. While we do have some leaders advocating for the Latino community, I don’t think we have enough. So what am I doing about it? I’m hoping to fill the gap by supporting Leadership Austin and getting more Latinos to apply for the 2011 Essentials class. I’m in the 2010 Essentials class – “mas chingon class ever!” I learned a lot about myself, the issues in the community and how many people want to do good in this town – it was 55 in this year’s class.
So will you step up? Will you lead? Come learn more about the Essentials class at the Hispanic Recruiting Reception on Thursday, May 20. We’ll have food, drinks & opportunities to connect with other Latino Leaders; and hear from Leadership Austin alums (yeah, like me!). Seriously, we have to step up and lead; not only for Latinos but for the whole community.
