Latina Coalition of Silicon Valley (LCSV) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that has been providing Latinas with civic engagement and leadership development in Silicon Valley since 1999. LCSV was recognized by San Jose Council Members and the Mayor for its work and contribution in the community.
LCSV addresses leadership development through a female and Latino/a cultural lens. LCSV identifies and heightens awareness about issues that disproportionately affect the Latino/a community through educational forums, lectures, workshops and events. LCSV is committed to mobilize, empower and unleash leadership among young adults through the ELLA program. LCSV fosters sisterhood through a friendly environment. Mixers give members access to professional Latinas from diverse work sectors.
LCSV provides programming every year for the The Engaged Latina Leadership Activist (ELLA) program. The ELLA program is designed to increase the leadership abilities of local Latinas and provide them with opportunities to learn about themselves and issues impacting Latinas locally and state-wide.
