Latino Leadership Programs will be more effective and have greater impact when directors and staff participate in leadership development at the highest level and use this knowledge to improve their programs. Through a partnership with the prestigious Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), LIDERAMOS offers fellowships to Latino directors and staff. In 2022, LIDERAMOS was proud to designate their first fellow at Leadership at the Peak, CCL’s C-Suite executive program and opens a new chapter of our partnership.

LIDERAMOS envisions Latino leadership as a field of study and a critical component of Chicano, Latinx, and interdisciplinary programs. The goal is to assess and explore the Latinx leadership scholarship evident in Chican@, Latinx, Native American and Indigenous Studies, Critical Psychology, and other disciplines. And to discuss how to increase Latinx leadership studies and how to create alliances with national and local professional development organizations molding the craft of leadership. Data (qualitative and quantitative) within the framework of community based research methodologies can be the tipping point to move social change.
