We are proud to announce the 23rd cohort of HLI, made up of 32 Latina leaders from across California who have made their mark in academia, political advocacy, government, law, and the non-profit and private sectors. This phenomenal group of leaders will embark on their 9-month journey in a virtual setting, and will enjoy rigorous sessions & prestigious guest speakers in the fields of civic engagement, leadership, political campaigning, health, education, and economic empowerment from the safety of their homes. The 2021 cohort will join a network of hundreds of HLI alumnae committed to improving political and economic parity for all communities and increasing Latina leadership representation in California & beyond.
