Leadership Summit Sessions

Beyond Latinidad: Identity, Intersectionality & Inclusivity
Patricia Mota
This year, the Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement (HACE)’s theme of “Beyond Latinidad: Identity, Intersectionality & Inclusivity” will help facilitate critical dialogues on various timely issues Latinos face in the workplace and showcase best practices and stories to inspire individuals to become leaders and owners of their own destiny in the workplace, life and for their communities.  Patricia will share her own personal leadership trajectory via this theme, showcasing the importance of personal and professional development, and specifically through the lens of understanding one’s own authentic identity, own Latinidad, those of others, and those amongst our community.  Effective leaders make this connection, embrace the intersectionality, and with that, influence inclusive spaces, teams and environments.

Change Yourself into a Change Agent
Dr. Rosanna Garcia

Not everyone is cut out to be a change agent. Change is difficult and most people will fight change, and sometimes will even attack the change agent. So why become a change agent? In this presentation, Dr. Garcia will discuss what is a change agent and why it’s an important role for the Hispanic professional to be a catalyst for change. You will be challenged to think of what you might want to change either in your personal life or in your professional life. Identifying meaningful places to make change, planning to implement that change and what to do when there are setbacks are topics that will be introduced in this workshop. Come ready to change yourself into a powerful change agent.
