Glenn Llopis wants to see Latinos bring their values and inner resources to the workplace — and become leaders.
They are a key, he says, to companies that seek to foster innovation, and gain a competitive edge.
“We’re already wired to understand uncertainty and change,” said Llopis, founder of the Center for Hispanic Leadership in Irvine. “For us, reinvention is no surprise with respect to how handle and manage it…For Hispanics and other multiculturals, it’s a fundamental of what we’ve experienced and we know how to navigate around it.”
The Orange County executive is launching what’s envisioned as the 10-city 2011-12 Hispanic Leadership Tour with a three-day symposium this week at Florida International University in Miami.
Speakers include Latino executives from such companies as Pepsi, AOL Latino, Winn-Dixie Stores, and Sears Holdings Corp. More than 200 people are expected to attend. Llopis expects Denver to be the second city on the tour.
