Beyond the Virtual Background: Leadership, Authenticity, & Your Voice

Thursday, March 10, 2022 – March 12, 2022

The Westin Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas, Irving, TX 75039

With stops and starts, the nation is reopening. We've lived and worked in Zoom, where we could mask the often messy realities behind us--dirty clothes piles, children's toys, aging furniture.

But we're re-entering a different world. Though we better understand the differences between lived experiences, challenges remain. Our own findings in the 2021 Prospanica Workplace Inclusion & Equity Report reveal the sometimes difficult contexts Latino professionals face in the corporate environment.

As we re-enter offices and boardrooms, we may have forgotten some of those professional norms, but they weren't working for everyone anyway. Now, we have a new opportunity. We can stop hiding what's in our backgrounds. We can choose authenticity and lead as we are.

Join us for the 2022 Prospanica Leadership Summit. Online registration closes March 4. Register now.

Earn the credential

Prospanica has partnered with Adelphi University to offer the Certificate of Authentic Leadership. This digital certificate will be shareable across social media, including LinkedIn, providing a means to codify your learning. As leadership skills intersect with a need for greater diversity, equity, and inclusion practices within corporate America, credentials like these allow learners to share the skills and expertise they've gained. Attendance will be required at the three sessions marked by an asterisk in the agenda below.

About the event

The 2022 Prospanica Leadership Summit will feature interactive learning experiences, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. The Summit is designed for Latino professionals who want to lead within their companies and communities.

COVID-19 In-Person Precautions

Your safety is paramount to us.  Please know that we will be taking every precaution possible to insure a clean safe environment to conduct our in-person Leadership Summit.  We are following the CDC recommendations and guidelines. We have also partnered with the hotel and other agencies to keep our meeting areas safe and clean.  We plan to do all of the following:

  1. A COVID-19 vaccine or proof of a negative COVID-19 test (within 72 hours) will be required to attend.  Prospanica has partnered with a leading health pass agency in order to confirm vaccination and negative test records.  You will be asked to install the free health pass app on your smart device.  There will be a process to upload and confirm your vaccination and/or test records. If you plan to submit a negative test, it must have been taken within the last 72 hours before attending the event (by March 7, 2022).  Only lab tests will be accepted; home tests will not suffice. Prospanica will be in touch with more detailed specifics on the exact process closer to the date of the Leadership Summit.
  2. Prospanica will institute a strict mask mandate.  Everyone will be required to wear a mask at all times during the Summit (with the exception of meals).
  3. There will be a color-coded system that will allow everyone to know how comfortable each individual is with distance and personal spacing.
  4. The Westin Irving Convention Center Las Colinas has a "Commitment to Clean" where they have hand sanitizer stations, social distancing, and a contactless experience.  Please click here for the Westin's website that will explain their "Commitment to Clean" in detail.
  5. To show proof of vaccination download the Health Pass Clear mobile app.

If there are any questions or concerns please send an email to events@prospanica.org and someone will respond to you as soon as possible.
