Latino Alliance's Urgent Call for Leaders!
We're not kidding!
We're not kidding.
We are not kidding.
This is an important CALL TO ACTION for Latinos. More Latinos are needed to become LEADERS ASAP!
Take a look at the statistics:
Leadership Scenario furnishes Challenge & Opportunity!
Seize this Opportunity & meet the Need for Leaders!
The statistics above indicate a scenario that offers both a huge challenge and a unique opportunity for Latinos!
The challenge is that Latinos, the fastest growing and youngest segment of the population, must step up and provide leaders in increasing numbers to meet both the current and rapidly increasing future leadership needs in their own families, communities, and jobs. These leadership needs are growing quickly. The collective desire of Latinos to build a better life for themselves and to achieve success is already calling for many more Latinos to take responsibility, take charge, and take the lead!
The opportunity part of the scenario for Latinos is that this is a really great time for them to decide to take on any kind of leadership role and start building their leadership capacity and experience.
In the future, the situation will more or less require or demand it of them if America is to remain a successful country. As the non-Latino population continues to have a low growth rate and gets older, the Latino population will grow very rapidly while continuing to be a younger group. Latinos will be expected to take on a proportionate and increasing amount of responsibility in every aspect of American life, along with the corresponding leadership that goes with that responsibility. We hope that Latinos' leadership aspirations keep pace!
