Join us at the inaugural Young Latinas Rising Conference 2017!
Presented by Young Latinas Aspire, The Serna Center at Sacramento State and the Health Education Council
The Young Latinas Rising Conference is a one of a kind event in the Sacramento / Central Valley region. Created by Young Latinas Aspire, with the support and mentorship of our community leaders, our vision is to provide resources to Latinas who are career minded and driven, to reach their highest potential as professionals and community advocates, in a statistically driven society. This conference will provide unique opportunities for mentorship and networking, with women of similar cultural backgrounds and experiences in diverse career fields, who are community leaders paving the road for the next generation of women leaders.
The purpose of Young Latinas Rising Conference | Jóvenes Latinas Creciendo, is to expose career-minded, Latina women in the Northern California region; between the ages of 18 and 30, to community leaders, elected officials, resources, education and a wide network of individuals alike.
