Jerry I. Porras Latino Leadership Award

The Hispanic Business Student Association hosts an annual award banquet to both celebrate the history and presence of the Latino community at Stanford GSB and to honor and encourage leadership in business as well as in the greater Latino community.

The banquet also helps to unite alumni with current students, faculty and administrators, and fosters personal bonds critical to the success of our communities.

At this evening event faculty, alumni, and students come together to honor a Stanford GSB alumnus who has made significant contributions to the business and Latino communities.
