Hispanic small-business owners are the fastest-growing category of entrepreneurs. However, overcoming immigration status, language barriers, and lack of funding and support often keeps hard working entrepreneurs from growing sustainable businesses. The panel discussions will focus on the internal and external barriers holding back Hispanic business owners and provide financial and educational resources such as funding options and financial literacy.

This session aims to recognize that we all have the power within to create a change. Querer es Poder – reminds us that as Hispanics, we must understand our background, who we are, and fully recognize the cultural scripts and narratives that guide and influence decision-making and behaviors. In this session, participants will learn how to recognize their own personal Hispanic cultural narratives and how these narratives positively and negatively affect their daily actions at times. Participants will gain the confidence, knowledge, and self-awareness to push through and re-write new narratives that create change and upward mobility for themselves and their communities.

The time is now for ALL to take action in breaking barriers, and ensuring Hispanics are no longer overlooked but celebrated, supported, and catapulted to their highest potential. Our Keynote speaker will address pressing issues Hispanic and Latino Americans face today and deliver an uplifting message on leading oneself, overcoming obstacles, embracing change, and making a powerful positive impact at the “New Seat at the Table”. 

This session aims to recognize that we have the power and knowledge to create a diverse table of voices. Hispanics must become involved in our communities, have a political voice for those issues that matter most to our communities, speak up on the importance of healthcare, education, and social equality and continue to invite our brothers and sisters to the new table. This session will provide participants with the tools needed to be continual advocates in their communities.
