Be Inclusive & Create Opportunities

Creating a diverse advisory board is an excellent way of building networks with Latino communities. Find individuals that are knowledgeable about local community issues, connected to the Latino community, and interested in diversity outreach work. Also find strategic ways of recruiting diverse staff, interns, and volunteers at your organization.
