Designed by, developed for and presented by Latinos, this event is an opportunity for corporate executives to help build an inclusive leadership pipeline and to develop Latino corporate leaders, one executive at a time. Corporate executives will showcase their leadership styles and methods along with strategies “from the inside” of what they're doing to keep the Latino talent pipeline growing.
