Hispanic Heritage Month: Inspirational Journeys of Chicago’s Hispanic Leaders

Please join Emerging Leaders Chicago for an evening of inspiration and learning as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a panel discussion featuring accomplished Hispanic professionals from a variety industries.

Our panelists will share their personal and professional journeys, discussing the challenges they’ve overcome, the achievements they’ve celebrated, and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. This engaging conversation will provide valuable insights and inspiration to aspiring leaders, shedding light on the unique perspectives and strengths that Hispanic individuals bring to the workforce. In particular, we will explore overcoming language barriers, navigating cultural differences, breaking through stereotypes, building a strong network, and achieving work-life balance.

Emerging Leaders Chicago engages and develops the next generation of Chicagoland business leaders. For young professionals, it builds relationships, cultivates skills and talent, and creates an inclusive community of future leaders.
