ALPFA is the leading professional association dedicated to empower and develop Latino men and women as leaders of character for the nation in every sector of the global economy.
The ALPFA Seattle Chapter was founded in March 2005 as the first chapter in the Pacific Northwest. We currently have over 120 members, five active committees (Membership, Fundraising, Event Planning, Student Outreach and Public Relations) and a Board of Directors. Our membership is comprised of professionals from a range of industries, including Big Four accounting firms, regional and local firms, real estate, financial services and students from local universities and community colleges.
The Latino Community Fund cultivates new leaders, supports cultural and community based non-profit organizations, and improves the quality of life for all Washingtonians.
To achieve our mission and address the needs of Latinos, LCF develops programs to create a vibrant community through civic engagement, economic empowerment, healthy families, arts, technology and culture. We are always striving to help our friends and members get involved. Join the LCF family.
Lean In – Latinas Circle is a group for Latinas with the MISSION of Bringing Latinas together in Greater Seattle seeking support, integration and camaraderie. It is designed for those like minded individuals with professional and entrepreneurial aspirations. We have monthly events to achieve our goals as a group.
We recognize Professionally, Latinas continue to face challenges, are underrepresented and suppressed. We believe it is important to help Latinas unlock their full potential to strategically position themselves to available opportunities in the workplace and society as a whole. We want to help close the nationwide gap from earning $0.56 to every $1.00 a Caucasian male earns. We have much work to do, as in Seattle the gap is even greater $0.47 to every $1.00. Let’s build this together and leave a legacy.
