Latina Success Leadership Program (LSLP)

Taking aim at the glass ceiling.
Continuing the Latina journey to leadership.

The Latina Success Leadership Program (LSLP) was created in 2015 to address the issue of
under-representation of Latinas in leadership roles in both business and government. LSLP, in partnership
with the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), empowers Latinas through a series of dynamic sessions
focusing on professional and personal growth including leadership development, strategic networking,
effective personal branding, building resiliency, and increasing civic engagement.
