ALPFA Boston’s 12th Annual Latina Summit aims to provide Latinas with an understanding of the power in building meaningful relationships. Through the Latina summit “Leveraging the Power of Relationships” Latina professionals will learn how to build and draw on their relationship capital, the power of sponsorship, how to ask, and have a clear understanding of how to act on the responsibilities as a protégé.
The audience will also discover how to “Accelerate Women Inclusion in key fields in Boston: STEM, Healthcare, Finance, Entrepreneurship, and D&I” as we present strategies on creating, nurturing, and maintaining a professional support network. This year Women of ALPFA is addressing the importance of “Investing in Young Latinas” and calling for ALPFA members to support young Latina Girl Scouts.
