2019 Best of the Boardroom

Highlighting the progress and prominent figures in today's boardrooms, in partnership with the Latino Corporate Directors Association.

Despite growing awareness of the importance of diversity and of the influential Hispanic market, a Latino on a corporate board is still a rarity.

The Latino Corporate Directors Association (LCDA) is changing this disparity.

For this, our fifth-annual Best of the Boardroom issue, we’ve partnered with the LCDA to highlight the progress and prominent figures in today’s boardrooms.
