LATINAS IN LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
Forum attendees explored the multifaceted ways in which intersectional identities shape how Latinas move through the world, build bridges, and thrive. Local leaders, activists, and original thinkers in the areas of healthcare, community development, performing and visual arts, business, and technology offered their stories, challenges, and triumphs. The conference was part of the USF Stakeholder Community Forum Series.
As a Latina it fills me with pride and empowerment when I see a Latina woman who, even after encountering many challenges, never gives up. I am aware that we will always face many obstacles but let's never forget that 'Si se suede'."
