Maria Teresa Kumar Biography

María Teresa Kumar brings more than 25 years of experience reaching people where they are, both on social media and mainstream media, and appealing to the most important values that unite us all.

Kumar is the founding CEO of Voto Latino (c4) and Voto Latino Foundation (c3) and an Emmy-nominated on-air analyst for MSNBC. Kumar deeply understands and is personally part of the fastest growing demographic group in America. This has given her a unique platform to shape some of the most pressing issues of our time, including police reform, gender pay equity, immigration, diversity and inclusion in tech, protecting the vote, and climate justice.

As the country’s largest Latinx voter registration and mobilization organization, Voto Latino has played a decisive role in American elections and been a major voice countering disinformation in the Latino community. Under Kumar’s leadership, this work has garnered numerous awards and recognitions.

Kumar began her career as a Senior Legislative Aide on Capitol Hill where she worked on appropriations and trade policy. She is a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School, an international affairs graduate of the University of California at Davis, a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, a publicly traded company and Emily’s List, and a visitor to more than 40 countries on 5 continents.

Kumar was born in Bogota, Colombia and immigrated to the United States when she was 4 years old. She grew up in California and took up her first job when she was eleven years old at Sonoma Develop-mental Center, a state hospital for people living with disabilities. Kumar lives in Washington, DC with her husband Raj Kumar and their two children ages 6 and 8.

Speaking Topics
  • Building Movements: Leveraging Innovative and Creative Initiatives to Impact Change

    Named by Fast Company as among the most 100 Creative Minds in Business Worldwide for her unique use of technology, media and celebrity to make transformative change and mobilizing the fastest growing group of Americans, Maria Teresa Kumar intimately understands how to utilize innovative approaches to build movements and bring people together. Under her leadership, Voto Latino launched the first ever national mobile voter registration campaign and directly registered over a quarter-million voters, while influencing countless more, during the 2008 election. In this presentation, Kumar shares with audiences how to utilize social networks, technology, and other viral sharing resources to build and maintain buzz – whether for products, services, campaigns, or social causes.

  • Our Changing America

    In this well-informed, lively, and compelling presentation, Kumar addresses many of the issues driving our national discussion. From the ever-changing demographics in the U.S., to the business, economic, and political ramifications of such a shift. A reflection of her MSNBC show by the same name, Kumar engages audiences on some of the most important political, social, and economic topics facing us today.

  • Business Opportunities from the Largest Growing Consumer Market in the U.S.

    With over $1.3 trillion dollars in purchasing power and a young, desirable demographic the growth opportunities for businesses are staggering. Kumar shares with audiences how this increasingly bi-lingual, 50 million plus Latino population within the U.S. presents enormous possibilities for organizations. Kumar illuminates audiences on how to embrace, cultivate, and cater to this unparalleled consumer base – and why organizations that do, will be far more prosperous than those that do not.

  • Politics, Policy, and Prosperity

    From immigration to education, economic policy, voter registration, and congressional redistricting, these are just a few of the many paramount issues that come to mind when discussing perhaps the most dramatic shift in American demographic. Few people are more informed and better equipped to speak on the changing landscape of American society – and most importantly, what it means for political campaigns, elections, economic prosperity, and business growth – than Maria Teresa Kumar. Highly sought out by business leaders, economic advisors, and campaign managers alike, Kumar shares with audiences her deep understanding of these issues, and how to successfully navigate through such unprecedented change.
