Women Empowerment: The effects of the pandemic on Women Leaders and how LULAC Trailblazers overcame it

The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated many inequities within communities of color while also pushing women of color to the frontlines at home and in the workforce. We have seen the effects of racial, ethnic, gender, and other forms of bias, and now, more than ever, it is imperative that we consistently uplift and remind Mujeres it is essential to remain determined to create change for the betterment of our families and communities. This conversation will focus on the different ways LULAC women trailblazers were affected by the pandemic and the different resources, steps, and personal growth that came with overcoming many of these obstacles.

Health/COVID-19

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an increase in women who are without healthcare and who have had worsening health conditions due to economic challenges and past health conditions. As caregivers for our families, we must continue to amplify the importance of our women’s health and wellness. This conversation will offer a glimpse into resources, options, and solutions on ways women can take control of their health today and advocate for access to equitable health care.

Women of the 21st Century, “ante la adversidad”; Entrepreneurship and leadership during the pandemic

Statistics have shown women have been disproportionately affected by burnout and job loss through the COVID-19 pandemic but ante la adversidad, we have continued moving forward. This panel is designed to inspire Latinas to learn more about Entrepreneurship and leadership to empower them to identify new opportunities and enhance their existing ones! Panelists will share lessons learned from their own careers, resources, challenges, and successes while exploring the intersection of Latinas in entrepreneurship and leadership positions.

11:15 AM - 12:00 PM

It’s Time to Represent: Getting Women Elected into Office

As Mujeres all of the United States continue to fight for equal and equitable rights, it is imperative that we make our voices heard by having representation at the decision table. Whether it be at a local, state, or national level, it is essential to remain determined and bring about change. This panel will discuss the different ways and techniques women can use to run for office to bring into account the lack of representation of the Latino community in positions of power. Panelists will provide their own journeys and advice as we continue to uplift Latinas in assuming public service leadership positions.

12:15 PM - 1:00 PM

Corporate America

With women leading change in many sectors of our communities, it’s time to focus on those working in Corporate America. Without women in the workforce, the amazing work for gender diversity will decrease to become obsolete, and NOW is the time for a change. This panel will offer various different insights from some of LULAC’s national partners to amplify the different ways to continue leading in Corporate America through the investment in women in the workforce.
