Latinos make up less than 4% of Fortune 500 board seats. Yet Latinos are a major force of the U.S. economy. Latinos accounted for 82% of the growth in U.S. labor-force participation between 2010 and 2017 and the purchasing power of the Latino community is expected to top $1.9 trillion by 2023.

The Fuqua School of Business, the Duke University Hispanic/Latino Alumni Association (DUHLAA), and DHR International have partnered on a virtual program to support getting Hispanic and Latino/a/x Duke alumni talent on private and public boards.

In this three-part webinar series, executive search experts, seasoned board directors, and board decision makers will uncover potential challenges and opportunities that apply to you and your future in board service. Attendees will walk away with a personal and tactical plan to becoming board ready.

In the third webinar, you will explore your own broad network of connections that will be a part of your board director preparation. Your network is invaluable in identifying, engaging, and securing future board roles and will set you up for success as a contributing board director.   

In Session 3 we will:

1. Engage with experienced board director and decision maker panelists on the topic of networking

2. Learn how to leveraging your own networks to become visible for board opportunities

3. Join a healthy pipeline of Latinx leaders and Duke Alumni ready to serve on corporate boards

Panelists are:

  • Nelson Bellido '89, Managing Partner of the Miami Office, Roig Lawyers (Moderator)
  • Kim Rivera '90, President, Strategy and Business Management, HP, Inc.
  • Ralph Santana MBA '94, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, HARMAN
