7th Annual Latin@ Leadership Summit

"Latino Image: The Road to Self-Discovery"

Fri, October 23, 2009 | Hyatt Regency Austin, 208 Barton Springs, Austin, Texas 78704

4:00 PM

The Latin@ Leadership Council at The University of Texas at Austin is pleased to announce that the 7th annual Latin@ Leadership Summit will take place at the Hyatt Regency Austin on October 23-24, 2009.

The Latin@ Leadership Summit is one of the largest leadership conferences for Latin@ students in the Southwest, drawing students from universities across the country.

This year’s theme, “Latino Image: The Road to Self Discovery,” will focus on stereotypes that Latin@s in our communities. While stereotypes distort reality and determine the way Latin@s are perceived in the United States, they also create reality by blinding us from understanding the way society works. The conference will provide students with the tools and skills necessary to overcome these stereotypes and transform their communities in a way that new images and realities are created. The Summit will also allow students to engage in dialogue on the impact stereotypes have on Latin@s education, professional, and social lives.

Registration for the Summit will be $30. Registration includes access to all workshops and events, provides several meals, a conference bag filled with resources, networking opportunities with conference participants, and much more!
