Leslie Sanchez Biography

Since 2003, Leslie Sanchez has served as a leader in market research specializing in the women’s and Hispanic-Latino marketplace. Her career has been spent at the forefront of data-driven analysis that shifts opinion, shapes policy and aids the decision-making process for global corporate brands, universities and colleges as well as international non-profit organizations.

For her work, Hispanic Business magazine called her one of the nation’s “100 Most Influential Hispanics,” and she was named “Texas Powerbroker” by the Houston Chronicle for being among the most influential Texans in Washington. She is the author of the critically-acclaimed– 'You've Come a Long Way, Maybe: Sarah, Michelle, Hillary and the Shaping of the New American Woman' and 'Los Republicanos,' which accurately predicted key shifts in Latino vote prior to 2008.

Sanchez started her career selling P.F. Collier encyclopedias door-to-door. Once in Washington, she was appointed by President George W. Bush to serve as executive director of the White House Initiative on Hispanic Education. Under her leadership, the initiative successfully built a grassroots network of 20,000 parents, educators and students, and issued two Presidential Commission reports aimed at closing the academic achievement gap between Hispanic and non-Hispanic students.

She appears regularly on network and cable television and was an on-camera member of CNN's 2008 award-winning election coverage team, making her one of only two Hispanic Americans hired as political contributors at major news networks, and the first at CNN. In 2012 and 2014 she signed with BBC News Worldwide as a political analyst for global coverage of the U.S. presidential and midterm elections, respectively.

Sanchez earned a BA from The George Washington University and MBA from Johns Hopkins University. She served on the Board of Providence Health Foundation and currently serves on the Board of Nativity School, a high-performing inner-city school in Los Angeles.

Speaking Topics
  • Americano Dream: How Millennials and the Next Generation of Hispanic Voters Are Reshaping America

    The electorate is not just voter blocs and special interests; it's people exercising their right to be heard and trying to inject a measure of control over their lives. Younger ethnic voters are challenging party labels, identity politics, and choosing political activism on their terms.

  • The New America: How Economic and Demographic Changes in the West are Driving the National Conversation

    Since its founding, America has moved inexorably west. It is a place where borders are meant to be crossed. The drive for expansion, for discovery, to embrace new challenges that was once geographic is now demographic. The western states represent the “New America,” with all the opportunities implicit in that idea.

    From technology to manufacturing, from finance to entertainment, the west is driving innovation in the American ethos. Both Navarrette and Sanchez live in the west. They can speak with familiar intimacy about the trends they see, the changes they have experienced in a way that is both informative and entertaining.

    The west has always been more than just a place; as Hollywood has portrayed it to the world it is a state of mind. It is where political and grassroots movements begin. It is the gateway to the emerging markets of the east – China, Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia. It’s where, particularly in the Rocky Mountain States and in the southwest, where America is growing. What happens there eventually migrates to the rest of the nation – so everyone from policymakers to business leaders needs to understand how life in this vital region of the United States is changing because that is the way the country will continue to evolve.

    Let Sanchez and Navarrette be your guides to the West. From where they stand, they can look far into the distance and see clearly what is over the horizon. Through this interesting and informative on-stage interview program, they look forward to sharing their vision with you.

  • Why Hispanics & Republicans Need Each Other

  • Sarah, Michelle, Hillary & the Shaping of the New American Woman

  • Hispanic Entrepreneurship

    Hispanics are the largest single minority group in the United States, and their numbers are expected to increase exponentially in this century alone. Leslie Sanchez teaches her audience how to reach this fast-growing segment of the US market, both what to do and what not to do to build a loyal customer base.

  • Dream Big!

    Poignant and often funny, Leslie Sanchez tells her personal tale of determination, luck, and a pursuit of a higher education which brought her to where she is today is a roadmap for others. Her success can be anyone's success, she says. It's all a matter of attitude.
