In recognition of the significant contributions made by Latinas in the United States, we are excited to introduce: “Hispanic Star Awards: Latino Changemakers Shaping America.”

This initiative aims to build an intentional network of cross-sector, cross-industry Latino Changemakers to celebrate, support, and connect Latinos who embody the spirit of transformative change in the US – the changemaker mindset.

At the heart of this partnership is a leadership development strategy that prioritizes empathy, enabling individuals to deeply understand and engage with diverse perspectives, thereby fostering more inclusive communities. Both organizations are committed to emphasizing creative problem-solving and sustainable solutions to complex social issues, inspiring collective action, and fostering an environment where teamwork and collaboration thrive.

By equipping individuals with changemaker skills to embrace smart risks, We Are All Human and Ashoka are cultivating the competencies necessary for individuals to contribute positively to societal good, aligning with Ashoka’s vision of an “Everyone a Changemaker” world.

IMPACT CRITERIA

The “changemaker mindset” is a crucial paradigm for navigating and leading in our rapidly evolving society. This mindset is built on empathy, where individuals deeply understand and respond to the emotions and perspectives of others, fostering inclusive communities. It emphasizes creative problem-solving to innovate and implement sustainable solutions for complex social issues.

The selection of awardees will be guided by Ashoka’s and Hispanic Star’s key skills and values for changemakers.

These Proximate leaders are deeply embedded within the communities they aim to serve. They possess an unparalleled understanding of local issues, enabling them to devise and implement solutions from a place of empathy and awareness. They are pivotal in creating sustainable change, not just through their immediate actions but by fostering a culture of changemaking, where communities are encouraged to be active participants in their own transformation. They not only co-create solutions that cater to multiple stakeholders, they also know how to build the conditions for everyone to contribute to the desired change.

They forge unlikely alliances to shift behavior, roles, and rules, enabling communities and societies to equitably distribute resources to elicit change. They empower local communities to take action, use their capacities and resources to be changemakers
for and with their communities, and thus create long-term sustainable change.

About ASHOKA

These Proximate leaders are deeply embedded within the communities they aim to serve. They possess an unparalleled understanding of local issues, enabling them to devise and implement solutions from a place of empathy and awareness. They are pivotal in creating sustainable change, not just through their immediate actions but by fostering a culture of changemaking, where communities are encouraged to be active participants in their own transformation. They not only co-create solutions that cater to multiple stakeholders, they also know how to build the conditions for everyone to contribute to the desired change.

Ashoka is currently building and cultivating a community of Fellows, Young Changemakers, Changemaker Institutions, and beyond who see that the world now requires everyone to be a changemaker – a person that sees themselves as capable of creating large-scale, positive change.

Together, amidst the exponential growth of a new inequality in changemaking at a worldwide scale, we mobilize (and accelerate) a movement to build an “Everyone a Changemaker” world where all people have the right and ability to co-lead solutions that transform their societies for the better.
