The Roadmap to Latino Prosperity
Mara Perez, PhD
Founder and Principal
The upcoming Census 2020 calls attention to the changing demographics of California and the United States. California is now considered a “majority-minority” state, one in which Whites are fewer than 50 percent of the population and traditional minorities make up more than half. Of those minorities, Latinos represent the largest component. In fact, Latinos are projected to represent nearly 30 percent of the total U.S. population between 2050-2060.
What does this mean for our national economy, prosperity, and political and business leadership? We welcome Dr. Mara Perez to help us understand these demographic shifts and their impacts.
Dr. Perez is Founder and Principal of Latino Futures, a consulting and think-tank project focused on fostering Latino success and prosperity as a means of assuring America’s future success and prosperity. Her strategic program, entitled “The Roadmap to Latino Prosperity,” creates a framework to build Latino socio-economic prosperity, arguing that this is a national imperative as the population undergoes dramatic racial and ethnic shifts over the coming decades.
Dr. Perez earned a PhD in Sociology from the University of Chicago. She is a Research Fellow at Dominican University of California concentrating on Latino entrepreneurship, and at LeaderSpring Center, focusing on leadership in the non-profit sector and women of color in the tech sector. Her publications have appeared in many prestigious books and journals, including the Stanford Social Innovation Review and Latin Business Today. She is currently a member of the Board of Directors of the Marin Health Center (formerly Marin General Hospital).
Please join us on March 11 for Dr. Perez’s talk describing how we can imagine and create a prosperous future for the nation by investing in the Latino community.
