Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

Join us as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with our inaugural Latinas in Leadership Luncheon and Young Women’s Conference.  Latinas In Leadership is a platform for Latinas and women entrepreneurs and professionals that support women at every stage of their career. Through this event, we provide training for the next generation while supporting and discussing the current issues for Latinas and Women entrepreneurs and professionals.


(11:30am – 1:00pm)

The Latinas In Leadership Awards Luncheon is an opportunity to celebrate our community, our culture, and local Latina leaders.  Keynote speaker Dr. Gina Nuñez is sure to motivate and inspire as she shares her experiences and encourages people to reach for their goal regardless of the obstacles.  Local Latina leaders will be recognized.
