Estimadas Damas,

On behalf of one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 4th Annual Latina Conference in the NEW 9th,, “Mujeres Empowered for Success.”

I am honored to host all of you to a one-of-a-kind experience that inspires, empowers and equips our women to reach their goals, achieve their potential and accelerate positive change in South LA. 

Over the course of the day, you will be treated to insightful discussions and robust presentations led by Latina thought leaders, trailblazers and professionals. We have developed a stellar line-up of highly skilled and respected Latinas sharing ideas and information on a broad range of issues affecting today’s Latinas. This day is devoted to support your professional and personal growth, and hone your leadership skills. 

This year’s conference addresses important topics that are key to your success, including career development, financial literacy, parent advocacy and more.

Make sure to stop by our community resource and job fair, and meet with Latina entrepreneurs selling a myriad of products next door! Stay with us until the end as we’ll have live entertainment, giveaways and other surprises in the afternoon.

Thank you for granting me the opportunity to be part of your journey. My team and I hope you will leave the conference bursting with newfound excitement, new tools in your toolbox and inspired to be the best version of yourself.

¡Gracias y que vivan las mujeres!

Councilmember, The NEW 9TH
