Through the Cultivating Hispanic Leadership Institute, members are able to participate in leadership training and become part of a leadership network with Hispanic business executives and entrepreneurs. The leadership institute is a six-month program that runs from January to June each year. Applications are taken year around and decisions are made before the winter holidays for the following year’s class. In addition, for those seeking immediate leadership skills that can be applied to their every day work, a one-day annual Cultivating Hispanic Leadership Conference is held at the UPS Headquarters in April.
