THE LATINO COALITION FOUNDATION (TLCF)
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established to research and address issues that directly affect the well-being of Latinos in the U.S.A.
We exist to promote initiatives that enhance overall business, economic and social development of Latinos across the country.
Two years ago, TLCF completed its study into the challenges and impediments encountered by Latinos pursuing careers in the Tech sector in California, and published its report, “Information communications Technologies Study,” that same year.
In 2018, the First-Ever White House Demo Day was organized to showcase women and minority founders and leaders in tech. The event, along with President Trump's call for action, sparked some major tech companies to announce new diversity initiatives. Facebook, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and Amazon have committed to improving their recruitment and hiring of women and minorities.
Recently, more than 700 Latino ICT industry professionals, academicians, Silicon Valley corporate representatives and executives, venture capitalists, ICT students and CBOs attended the TLCF's first annual Latino Tech Summit in Silicon Valley. With it, the event solidified TLCF's pivotal role in advocating on behalf of Latino professionals and entrepreneurs in California.
The Honorable Hector V. Barreto is Chairman The Latino Coalition (TLC), one of the largest and most effective latino advocacy groups in the nation. TLC’s stature in the business community and the political community has grown steadily since Barreto took the helm of the organization in 2006.
His vision for TLC is based on what he calls the “four C’s,” the issues that are the keys to success for the organization’s small-business membership, Capital, Capacity-building, Contracts and Cost control. TLC’s growing influence, membership and partnerships are all evidence of the effectiveness of his leadership approach.
