HHF’s award-winning LOFT program focuses on various “tracks” or priority areas, including one which focuses on Latinas. Through this Latinas On Fast Track program, Latina professionals and college students come together for leadership trainings, workforce development, networking, and community outreach as well as access to mentors. The Latinas On Fast Track initiative connects, inspires, and empowers young Latina professionals and college students from across the nation through leadership, networking, and community building to prepare them for the pursuit of their career, all while celebrating their Latina culture!
The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) launched the Latinas On Fast Track (LOFT) program in New York and Los Angeles by coordinating Summits in each market for young Latina professionals and students, who we have identified as under-served. Beyond the Summits, which were designed to engage, connect and galvanize these young Latinas – HHF has entered the continuum part of the program by connecting the participants on the East and West coasts to each other and to the bigger LOFT Network to create communities of Latina leaders who can share ideas, support each other, and mentoring.
This effort is an ongoing leadership, personal development and career path program and featured a variety of informative and interactive workshops ranging from understanding digital platforms for personal brands to creating a personal plan of impact to gauge their development. Another part of the effort was providing access to Latina leader role models through the speakers who inspired, candidly shared through their challenges and successes, and interacted with the participants.
Will you join us in inspiring and empowering Latina professionals and college students from across the nation through leadership, networking, and community building all while celebrating Latina culture?
