Welcome to 2021, Latinas in Tech! As we prepare for the year ahead, we’d like to provide a space for reflection, goal-setting, and strategizing. During this 90-minute session, we’ll explore ways we can nurture resilience and perseverance, which are qualities necessary to achieve our goals. We’ll also dive into exercises to help us find clarity and build the career of our dreams this year. The event will consist of two parts, as described below (60 minutes). The following 30 min will be an opportunity for you to get more time with each of the speakers, ask questions, and network with other attendees. We look forward to seeing you then!
Session 1: The 5 Fundamentals of an Unstoppable Life by Lara Manqui – “There are many things that can stop us from moving forward: the neigh-sayers, the glass ceiling, the overwhelm of it all… How can we be prepared to overcome every obstacle we meet? In this talk, Lara Manqui will give us the 5 fundamentals to becoming unstoppable and 1 key idea we must take with ourselves always as we walk our unique path to our most fulfilled self.”
Session 2: Career building with purpose by Dr. Christina Villarreal- Career development means planning for the career you want in 3-5 years, not the promotion you want in 3-5 months. Lack of representation and connections to industry insiders can make career development especially perplexing for Latinas in tech. How can we begin identifying and mapping out a career path that reflects our values and purpose? In this talk, Dr. Christina Villarreal will share 3 fundamental building blocks to ignite your path towards your unstoppable you.
