Certainly, all of us are going through a very hard time.
It is with great pain that I see many of our beloved Latinas lose their jobs because COVID-19 has impacted the organization they lead, they work for, or they contract with. Moreover, my heart goes out to the Latinas who have had to deal with COVID-19 themselves or affecting their loved ones.
It is with our most humble and open heart that the board of directors, our employees, and I have been doubling our efforts to put together content that helps our members and our allies navigate this situation that is new, scary, and sometimes threatening.
Please know that you are not alone, that we are all in the same boat, and that we will come out of this stronger. We are a resilient community so I have no doubt of the outcome.
I want to let you know that we have created a COVID-19 Resources Page that contains a number of resources that we hope are helpful to you:
- Webinars tailored for what we are going through during these tough moments
- Helpful articles
- Resources for Entrepreneurs
- Resources for Latinas who lost their jobs
- Helpful tools to manage anxiety
- Resources to help others
Remember that we have a Career Hub, where you can find new opportunities.
We know many companies are on a hiring freeze, but many others are still hiring. Please stay tuned, we are working hard to ensure that our partners and allies post their open roles.
Join us in our Slack channel where you can find a #COVID-19 room where you can share ideas, share your feelings in #IneedaHug or share insights for Entrepreneurs in our #Founders room.
We will keep developing programs to help as many of you as possible.
Please stay safe – we hope to see you very soon.
