LEADing Up - Leadership Program

The Latin American Chamber of Commerce of Charlotte (LACCC) is proud to offer a leadership development program designed for developing the leadership capacity of Latin American leaders in the Charlotte Region. L.E.A.Ding-U.P. (Leadership, Education, Alignment, and Developing - Upward Potential) will focus on addressing leadership development skills that will help to close the gaps that employers face when developing Latinos who are in leadership roles.

These emerging leaders may be transitioning through Maslow Hierarchy of Needs from security to belonging as well as still developing their English language and acculturation in the United States workplace.

The program is designed to build social capacity by engaging U.S.-born and foreign-born Latinos to learn from each other and learn how to lead in a Multicultural work environment.
