This week marks the Latina Leadership Network’s first birthday!
As we celebrate this wonderful milestone, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you and a big congratulations to all of our members! Your presence and participation in the LLN is what helps the group to thrive!
Born on June 20th, 2013, the Latina Leadership Network was founded with the intent of supporting and promoting the careers and leadership of Latinas by sharing opportunities, resources, peer mentoring and discussion. To date, the LLN hosts more than 2,600 talented and tenacious Latina/o professionals!
Earlier this year, the LLN evolved, becoming the ELLA Leadership Institute’s official online community. More than a network and more than a group of peers, the LLN has become an extended family for many of our members, providing them with a safe space to ask and answer questions regarding everything from work to school to the elusive work-life balance.
Every week, the LLN welcomes a group of new members and hosts a discussion of the week. On a daily basis, members share resources and opportunities, build peer-mentoring relationships and make meaningful connections with one another. Because the group lives and breathes on Facebook, we’re able to check in with one another and participate in ongoing and growing conversations in real-time.
In our first year so far, members have celebrated countless business launches, accolades, job promotions and life-changes together. We are looking forward to many more of these celebrations over the course of the next year.
So join us in celebrating the LLN’s first birthday by inviting your friends, colleagues and peers to join this exclusive group of driven Latina/0 professionals.
