Robbin Meneses joined CHI in 2023 as a Community Engagement Specialist. He works to prioritize racial equity while building trust and strengthening relationships with community organizations and partners, cultivating new and existing partnerships, and implementing best practices in partner engagement and communication. Robbin works closely with the Metro Denver Partnership for Health.
Robbin was most recently a Program Manager for the Latino Leadership Institute where he implemented the inaugural Latino Entrepreneur Access Program and organized training and development for its participants. In this role, he developed outreach programs for applicants and recruited senior-level executives as presenters.
As a Philanthropy Officer for The Denver Foundation, Robbin created engagement opportunities for donors and grantees and expanded support in communities of color through giving circles. In his role as a field organizer for Florida's Democratic Party, he took on the responsibility of leading the Latinx recruitment team and organizing cultivation events for local candidates.
Robbin volunteers for several organizations including Latino Outdoors, Latinos Impacting our Future Together, and The Denver Foundation’s Scholarship Committee. He also serves on the advisory board for the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition and participates as a grant selection panelist for the National Endowment of the Arts.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and an executive master’s in public administration from Florida International University. He earned a certificate in nonprofit and community management and is certified in human resources through the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR).
Outside of work, Robbin enjoys spending time with his friends and dog, Usnavi, whose name was inspired by the play (not the movie!) “In the Heights.” Often you can find him cooking or hiking and helping various nonprofits.
