Prepares Professionals to Compete for a Seat at the Corporate Table
Los Angeles CA, Latina representation among the upper levels of management is low nationally compared with their 16.3 percent population share. According to the 2011 HACER’s Corporate Inclusion Index, there is a decrease of Latinos in the C-suite from 8 percent in 2010 to 7 percent in 2011.
The National Latina Business Women Association -LA Chapter, “Emerging Latinas Program, Roadmap for Success” is a three week intensive professional development program designed to empower the Latina corporate professional by providing the tools needed for them to advance their career.
The signature program will take place October 24th, November 7th and November 14th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Metropolitan Water District, 700 N. Alameda Street, Los Angeles CA 90012.
Topics will include: Developing your personal brand and positioning yourself as a thought leader in your industry, negotiation skills to help you navigate the corporate culture, technology tools to make you more effective and embracing work-life balance while securing a seat at the corporate table.
By the year 2015, the purchasing power for Hispanics is estimated to reach $1.5 trillion. Corporations with a diverse pool of professionals will be poised to connect with more than 50 million potential customers.
“The Emerging Latina program will not only provide Latina professionals with the tools they need to be effective leaders, but will also enable Corporations to be more competitive in the marketplace by recruiting Hispanic professionals that can bridge the gap between two cultures”, shared Veronica Corona, NLBWA-LA President.
The 2012 NLWBA-LA Emerging Latinas Program is made possible because of the generosity of our partners: Comerica Bank, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and Legacy Financial.
