About Latina Circle
A Network to Connect, Mentor, and Champion Latina Leaders
The Latina Circle is an exclusive network that is advancing Latina leaders across industries into positions of power and influence.
Our mission is to connect, mentor and champion Latina leaders, share best practices, and provide them with a network of professional support.
How We Do It
Through our in-person networking events, as well as via substantive programming, the Latina Circle is carrying out these recommendations by connecting, mentoring and championing multicultural women leaders who support the Latina Circle’s mission. The Latina Circle hosts quarterly networking breakfasts called “Cafecitos” where our invited professionals can connect with other senior leaders as well as inspire emerging leaders. We also provide leadership programming aimed at sharpening skills and adding a competitive edge to the current generation of leaders, as well as preparing the future generation of our leaders to advance into the next phase of their careers.
