HIP Proudly Welcomes Our 2022 Líderes

Hispanics in Philanthropy proudly welcomes 28 new fellows to our Líderes Program! This unique group of 28 Latinx leaders represent multilayered and intersecting identities and struggles, both distinct and shared - whose perspective and growth as leaders will contribute to dismantling white supremacy and creating new paths of liberation for future leaders to come. 

Together this cohort will venture on a transformational journey of returning to power and taking collective action to make the philanthropic sector more equitable. The Líderes will gain an increased awareness about their role in transforming the social sector and next steps they can put into action to advance their leadership practices, organization and careers. A HIP Líder is highly adaptive, vulnerable and focused on building working relationships that both nurture and hold integrity. 

This year’s HIP Líderes represent 20 philanthropic institutions and 8 nonprofits from across the United States. Líderes were chosen on the basis of their commitment to racial equity and social justice, along with their personal and professional experiences that have informed their leadership in the Latinx community. We believe in the cohort's ability to advance to the next level of their career and will work with them to not only advance their goals, but also more importantly to create the necessary space to heal from the inflicted traumas carried from having to survive in spaces not created for our people. 

This new addition of fellows - the seventh cohort of the program - will join a national network of over 200 Latinx philanthropic and nonprofit alumni who are connecting for change and creating opportunities for growth and advancement post-fellowship to thrive.
