CREATING NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR LATINA LEADERSHIP
The 2017 El Concilio
Latina Leadership Luncheon
Benefitting the El Concilio Scholarship Program for Deserving Local Youth
For a decade El Concilio has held an annual Latina Leadership Luncheon, celebrating the accomplishments of Latinas in business, politics and advocacy. Intended to inspire and motivate young Latinas to recognize their own strengths and become knowledgeable leaders, the event now also encompasses our new El Condor Pasa/Speak Your Truth project as a call for social justice, while also elevating the dialogue and awareness of the link between America’s future success the Latino community. Drawing eager and enthusiastic participation, the event connects individuals with like-minded community members, while offering insight to the importance of Civic Engagement and Advocacy to our community.
This year, our featured speaking will be Leticia Ordaz, KCRA General Assignment Reporter and Weekend Morning Anchor, and Jennifer Torres-Siders, University of the Pacific.
All proceeds benefit our scholarship program - one of the most ambitious in San Joaquin Valley - and deserves the support of all if we are to overcome the many challenges we face in educating our young people.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK OUR EVENT SPONSORS FOR THEIR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTONS
