Each day will be centered around
a different theme



Future of Leadership

We kick off with radical honesty - How do we deconstruct the assimilation our community had to/chose to follow in order to get into decision making rooms. How does the next gen of leaders reexamine power to reimagine the type of leadership needed now? How can the broader community learn from and show up better for the Afro-Latinx and Indigenous members of our community? New times require a new set of leadership values.



Latinidad in the Workplace

Latinx talent continues to redefine sectors. Join speakers in business, technical, and leadership roles as they discuss our impact and best practices—and share their advice for change. We will dive into the personal journey of executives navigating opportunities while defying statistical odds and preserving their cultura. This is where talent meets opportunity as we host the largest cross sector career fair and networking.

Acceptance vs Rights

What is the difference between Acceptance vs Rights, and the shifts we need to make as a community to engage in conversations that open up space for all parts of our communities instead of subsets of them? What does it mean to hold our power and acknowledge the barriers that still exist. This day will uplift and celebrate the Latinx led and Latinx serving organizations during the Comunidad Expo.



Owning our Voces

Our final day will close with hybrid celebration - virtual closing keynote and awards as well as pop up activations across 5+ cities. We will kick off our inaugural Voces De La Comunidad Awards to recognize our hidden figures as well as uplift our leaders across sectors.
