LATINA CAREER CONNECT
The goal of Latina CareerConnect is to provide valuable insights and advice on a range of career-related topics, such as tips for successful job interviews, strategies for advancing your career, negotiating salaries and benefits, changing careers, and networking.
Our sessions are hosted by career and leadership coach Dani Tan, who brings her extensive experience and expertise to help Latina professionals navigate their career paths and achieve their goals.
Empowering Latinas in the Workplace
In today’s increasingly competitive job market, it’s essential to understand what employers are looking for during the interview process. That’s why we have a session called “Ace the Interview,” where you can learn how to prepare for job interviews, answer tough interview questions, and make a great first impression.
For those who want to advance their careers, our “How to Get a Promotion” session provides tips on standing out in the workplace, developing a career advancement plan, and effectively communicating your achievements to your manager.
Our “Closing the Gap” session addresses the gender pay gap, providing strategies for negotiating salaries and benefits and advocating for yourself in a professional and effective manner.
If you’re looking to make a career change, our “Career Pivot” session provides valuable tools and advice for exploring new career paths, developing new skills, and building a strong professional network to facilitate the transition.
Throughout the year, Dani Tan will provide tailored insights and advice to help Latina professionals overcome unique challenges they face in their careers. Our LinkedIn Live format allows for real-time interactions and Q&A sessions, providing opportunities for participants to ask questions and receive feedback.
One of the most significant benefits of the Latina CareerConnect series is the opportunity to engage with other Latina professionals and build a supportive community. We’ve received positive feedback from participants like Maria Luna, a young professional based in New York, who believes the series will be an incredible resource for her career. Our organization also offers mentorship programs, networking events, conferences, and summits to support Latina professionals in achieving their full potential.
In summary, Latina CareerConnect is a must-attend event for any Latina professional looking to advance their career and achieve their full potential. With practical advice, actionable insights, and a supportive community of like-minded Latina professionals, we’re empowering the next generation of Latina leaders and creating a more inclusive and equitable workplace for all.
