 Leslie Sanchez Biography

An author, political analyst, and former director of a White House education initiative, Leslie Sanchez is known for her straightforward style and in-depth understanding of the political and cultural landscape, both inside and outside Washington. Sanchez was an on-camera member of CNN's award-winning 2008 election coverage team.

Sanchez is founder and CEO of Impacto Group LLC, a premium communications and market research firm that specializes in defining social and economic trends affecting women and the emerging US Hispanic community.

She was later appointed by President George W. Bush as the executive director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans. She also served as a legislative aide to US Rep. Henry Bonilla (TX-23), where she focused on appropriations issues and immigration and border security policy.

Speaking Topics
  • The Changes in Washington.

    The historic 2008 Presidential election ushered in a new era of activist government in Washington. From the reregulation of the financial markets to an expanded role for government in health care to tens of billions being spent on economic stimulus, President Barack Obama and the Democrats in control in Congress are changing the rules of the game. Drawing on her experience at the Republican National Committee as well as her work as president of one of the country?s leading women
    • owned market research firms, Leslie Sanchez explains the country's reaction to the new day in Washington and whether the pendulum has really swung as far as people think.

  • You've Come a Long Way, Maybe: The Progress of Women in Politics.

    The prevalence of serious women candidates in the 2008 primary and presidential elections doesn't mean that women have finally achieved parity with men in politics. Drawing on lessons of her forthcoming book, Leslie Sanchez explains how the development of the post-modern women's movement has, on both ends of the political spectrum, changed politics in America and how politics in America have changed women.

  • Reaching America's Latinos.

    The diversity of the marketplace makes the challenge of networking effectively more difficult. Leslie, drawing from her real life experience on both sides of the desk, gives guidance on how to make and keep meaningful cross-cultural contacts instead of increasing tensions through misunderstanding.

  • Opportunities and Challenges in Hispanic Education.

    Education is not the problem, says Leslie Sanchez, it's the solution. Nevertheless, the current system is not working for everyone, not just by failing to teach the 3 R's but in the ways that fail to develop new generations of Americans, united in the idea of a common country and a common ethic. An educated population is a secure, prosperous and knowledgeable one that can compete effectively with China and India in the coming global marketplace.

  • Discover America's True Swing Voters: Hispanics.

    Based on her book Los Republicanos: Why Hispanics and Republicans Need Each Other, Leslie emphasizes that Hispanics aren't just changing America at its edges they are the new powerhouse poised to decide the nation's political future for generations.
