Latina Lista -- Want to network with hundreds of Latinas Listas?
The National Hispana Leadership Institute (NHLI) will convene over six hundred Latinas, national leaders and NHLI's accomplished alumnae at the Wilshire Grand Hotel in Los Angeles, CA in just a couple of days on November 3-4, 2011 at their annual national conference.
For those who may not be familiar with the organization, NHLI, founded in 1987, has trained and empowered more than 10,000 Latina leaders from both the public and private sectors. These Latinas have gone on to be appointed to leadership positions in government, corporate America, nonprofits, foundations or have started their own businesses.
NHLI's mission is to develop Hispanas as ethical leaders through training, professional development, relationship building, and community activism.
This year, NHLI and Latina Lista have partnered together to send TWO lucky Latinas from California to the conference!
