For the mid-career or experienced professional

Session #1 | Are you Future Fit? 21st Century Essential Skills 
Presenter: Rosario Sánchez Ledesma 

In these volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous times (VUCA), long-term relevance is no longer a guarantee. It is imperative to develop 21st Century essential skills that allow you to deliver indispensable value to yourself, others, and your business. Future Fit will focus on increasing your self-awareness. Identify your top saboteurs that stop you in your tracks. Imposter Syndrome and other “noise” can often paralyze leaders, increase self-doubt and decrease performance. Learn about what it takes to equip yourself with the edge you need to handle life’s challenges with a positive mindset instead of getting upset or stressed out. Are you ready to optimize your performance, relationships, and wellness? If yes, this session is for you! 

Session #2 | DEIB: Where We’ve Been. Where We Are. Where We Need To Go.
Organizations have been setting goals and implementing programs to advance diversity and inclusion for decades, but what lessons have we learned from the struggles of practitioners in order to make meaningful progress? This candid conversation will focus on what's working (or what's not) in the world of DEIB today and how we can prepare for the future.

Track B: 

For the early or mid-career professional

Session #1 | Grow Your Empathy Muscle for Crucial Conversations
Presenter: Tammy Belton-Davis
Crucial conversations are defined by high-stakes situations that can be characterized as highly emotional. It can be daunting to share your experiences when the risk is high. In this session, we will help you prepare for those conversations and transform personal emotions into powerful tools for meaningful dialogue. Along the way, we will strengthen your empathy muscle to create safe spaces for engagement with transparency and persuasion.
Session #2  Mentee Mindset: A guide to meaningful relationships to transform your career

Mentors are a critical part of our network of support as Latinx professionals. The concept of mentoring is familiar in our cultures, yet it can be challenging to find the right mentors to support your personal and professional development in the workplace. Join us for an interactive dialogue about the best practices for finding a mentor and being an effective mentee. Then, spend time connecting with Latino/a/x/e executives in an intimate group setting. Think of these conversations as talks with your madrina, padrino, tia, primo o prima! Come away feeling confident about how to find a mentor and grow a transformational mentoring relationship.
