ILI LATINO LEADERSHIP RECOGNITION AWARD SERIES

The Indiana Latino Institute launches a statewide effort to recognize Indiana Latino talent in three different tiers of their careers.

Soon to be the largest population of color in Indiana, the thriving Latino community has a plethora of members who have accomplished feats, are leaders in their fields, and are catalysts in others’ successes. Woven throughout the public and private sectors, these individuals lead community groups, operate businesses, manage institutional services, excel in media, serve on boards, mentor others, and more. They have helped create an environment conducive to growth—a 40% increase in Indiana’s Latino population from 2010 to 2020.

As many successful Latinos deserve to be acknowledged for their accomplishments benefitting Hoosiers and their communities, the Indiana Latino Institute (ILI) created a program to identify and commend three classes of Latino leaders:

 

Latino Leadership Legacy
Elevated Latinos Under 40
Rising Latino Stars in their 20s

 

Those successful and young community members already have distinguished themselves and have promising futures. Identifying them and acknowledging their achievements will propel them to greater heights.

Calling for nominations from throughout the state, ILI welcomes submissions from August 2 through September 15, 2022. Submit nominations at the links below.

The selected inaugural recipients of the three awards will be recognized and honored at ILI’s Hispanic Heritage Month Annual Luncheon on October 11, 2022.

Questions or additional information about the program can be directed to the
ILI Manager of Leadership & Marketing Emily Price at eprice@indianalatinoinstitute.org or call (317) 472-1055.

 

 

For generations, Latinos have contributed to the success of Indiana across the state, in their business sectors, in their communities, and more. The Indiana Latino Institute is uniquely positioned to identify and honor those who have achieved significant milestones and worked relentlessly over many years to improve Hoosier lives.

The Indiana Latino Institute created the Latino Leadership Legacy to recognize and honor Latinos who have built legacies through decades of service and contributions to Indiana and local communities. The Latino Leadership Legacy recipients are those whose persistent achievements span over many years, made their mark in their respective fields, improved Hoosier outcomes, and have relentlessly addressed systemic barriers to pave the way for more Latinos.

As many successful Latinos deserve to be acknowledged for their accomplishments benefitting Hoosiers and their communities, the Indiana Latino Institute (ILI) created a platform to identify and commend mid-career Latino leaders—Elevated Latinos Under 40. Those successful and maturing community members already have distinguished themselves and have promising futures. Identifying them and acknowledging their achievements will propel them to greater heights.

The Indiana Latino Institute created the ELEVATED Latinos Under 40 to recognize, and honor outstanding Latinos who have contributed to our state and local communities, including the Latino community. These Latinos have paved paths and built careers that outshine their peers.
