Latino Cultural Network

"Within the Latino Cultural Network (LCN), I found a home. LCN has connected me with mentorship and networking opportunities that have helped me grow in my career. Together with leaders from across the BBH Affinity Networks, LCN has inspired me to further integrate myself into the BBH community. It feels great to enhance my skills and personal development while celebrating and sharing my culture with others.”
