About this event

The workshop is designed to explore our/the “Latinidad” of the largest minority group in the United States. We will discuss, and develop strategies that can be used to increase the chances for relevant contributions to your employer, and community. “Being the One in the Room” is a provocative session that will challenge our assumptions about being Latino/x in today’s workplace, and explore methods for pushing the professional agenda. We will push through statistics, models, and reasons why being an Advocate, Activist and Advisor are necessary for self and community success. The presented lived experiences, models, and strategies are for person use, and MIT’s consideration. Join us!
