The National Hispana Leadership Institute’s 2010 Executive Leadership Training Conference and Mujer Awards brought together nearly 600 Latinas for two days of cutting-edge leadership and professional development, networking, educational and inspirational keynotes and workshops facilitated by top-level Latinas from across the country.
At the Mujer Awards Gala, celebrated since 1993, which was held on Friday, November 5, NHLI closed the conference by paying tribute to the achievements and contributions of exceptional Latina leaders. This year the honorees were:
NHLI's 2010 Rising Stars were Gaby Pacheco, immigration activist, and Maria Isa, a Latin hip-hop artist with a social justice message.
The conference featured a Health & Wellness Expo and Career Recruitment Fair; distinguished Latina authors and artists at book signing and art exhibit, and a Community Marketplace with local artisans promoting their beautiful crafts.
Conference attendees included nearly 600 local and national leaders in corporate America, nonprofits, government, media, higher education, as well as entrepreneurs, students, artists, authors and others. Stay tuned for more updates.
