Ms. Esther Aguilera

Term:

Since November 2004

Profile:

Esther Aguilera, one of Washington's top strategic thinkers, is President & CEO of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), a position she has held since November 2004. Under her leadership, CHCI continues to aggressively expand national programs and services to Hispanic high school, college and graduate students - growing the organization's annual budget and national visibility. She is a 2010 recipient of the Alumni Seal Award for Service to the Community from her alma mater, Occidental College in Los Angeles, and was featured as one of the nation's top 90 women mentoring leaders by Women of Wealth magazine in February 2011. She has been recognized as one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in Washington, D.C., presented with Hispanic Magazine's 2006 Latina Excellence Award in Education, and was featured in Latino Leaders magazine's 2007 women's issue for her positive impact in the Hispanic community. Aguilera's unique expertise - derived from extensive senior management experience in corporate, public affairs, policy, legislation, fundraising and the non-profit sector - makes her a sought out expert. In January 2011, U.S. Office of Personnel Management Director John Berry appointed Aguilera to its newly created Hispanic Council on Federal Employment to to advise him on leading employment practices in the effort to remove barriers to recruitment, hiring, retention, and advancement of Hispanics in the Federal workforce. She began her career in Washington, DC in 1990 as a policy analyst for the National Council of La Raza, a prominent national think tank, with extensive national policy development and research responsibilities leading Aguilera to author several major publications. Aguilera was executive director of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, a legislative group on Capitol Hill, whom she worked for from 1993-98. Her responsibilities included legislative and relationship building among congressional, White House and constituency allies. In October 1998, Aguilera was appointed to serve as senior advisor to Energy Secretary Bill Richardson and executive director of the Department of Energy (DOE) Small Business Office. Under Secretary Richardson, Aguilera developed senior policy recommendations leading to the implementation of a nationwide Hispanic outreach program, increased DOE's small business contracting, established long-term partnerships with business leaders and launched the first DOE small business conference, now an annual event. Prior to joining CHCI, Aguilera served as Principal at the Dewey Square Group, a nationally renowned public affairs firm, directing strategic national projects for a variety of Fortune 100 companies, trade associations and non-profits. Aguilera has also led strategic membership fundraising for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, exceeding fundraising goals while implementing national outreach programs. She has been a featured speaker at numerous national conferences and forums, including Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, National Council of La Raza, Latina Style Magazine, among others. She holds a BA in Public Policy from Occidental College, Los Angeles. A native of Mexico, Aguilera's family relocated to Los Angeles in 1972. Overcoming numerous obstacles, today the Aguilera's have achieved the American dream. She is married and the mother of two wonderful boys, Mackie and Jacob.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program Description:

CHCI's educational programs include a Summer Internship Program which provides 35 outstanding Latino undergraduate students from across the country the opportunity to spend eight weeks in Washington, DC getting a "behind the scenes" look at how the U.S. government functions and it's role in shaping public policy. Students are assigned to Congresional Offices where they work on constituent communications, monitor hearings, conduct legislative research and assist with general office operations. The interns experience is enhanced by weekly leadership development sessions during which they meet and dialogue with national leaders on current policy matters. The Fellowship Program offers up to 25 college graduates and graduate students from across the country the opportunity to gain hands on experience at the national level in the public policy area of their choice. All aspects of public policy are considered including issues affecting children and families, international affairs, economic development, education, housing, business, health, telecommunications, local government, and corporate-public interest. The scholarship award was created in an effort to increase the high school graduation rate, promote higher education, and meet the staggering need for financial assistance by Latino Students.
