Latina Leadership Initiative

The Latina Leadership Initiative of Greater Des Moines (LLI) is a one-year intensive leadership development and mentorship program that builds a pipeline of socially conscious Iowa Latina leaders who create change through service on boards and commissions, public office, and within the private, nonprofit, and educational sectors. It is the only leadership development program in Iowa focused on emerging Latina leaders between the age of 20 and 34, an often over-looked, under-served, and disenfranchised segment of our population.
