The “You” Advantage: Using Your Uniqueness to Build a Bridge of Possibilities “It’s better to give than to receive.” We’ve all heard that, but Pedro David Espinoza takes it a step further: “If serving is beneath you, then leadership is beyond you.” That motto has been the basis of Pedro’s journey, from growing up in Peru to attending UC Berkeley and becoming the founder of a Silicon Valley startup at 19. In this session, join Pedro as he tells the story of his life, and how he used his talents for a better purpose—to make a social impact—and push yourself to go beyond your comfort zone, to ask yourself “what bridges am I building today?”

Embracing Our Afro-Latinx Identities

In this session, join us in an honest discussion about being Afro-Latinx on college campuses and in early careers as three guests share their experiences. This interactive workshop also brings together our Affiliate leaders and Afro-Latinx experts as we develop a framework to continue striving to support all Latinxs.

Is the American Dream Still Achievable for Latinos? A Conversation About Affordable Housing 
The United States faces a housing crisis for Latinos and other low- and moderate-income families. Homeownership rates have not improved since the Great Recession and availability of affordable rental units continues to be a struggle in communities across the country. Perspectives on how to address this crisis range from focusing on more efficient market mechanisms to fostering the political will to make affordable housing a greater national priority. The plenary session will explore these strategies to help attendees better understand the issue of affordable housing and advocate for policies that could help our community find affordable homes.

Interns: A Force to Be Reckoned With
We’ve all been encouraged to pursue internships, whether unpaid, for credit, or a stipend, but what’s the real value of an internship? Internships aren’t just a resume-builder; they offer the chance to try out work in a specific filed, to work alongside experts and can give you a real taste of the work for a particular career and help you decide if it’s the right one for you.

The Future Is Latino: Breaking Barriers in the Age of Innovation 
In an era of low unemployment rates, automation, and an increasingly digital workplace, Latinos have unique needs that must be addressed to be prepared for the workforce of tomorrow. With Latinos accounting for 25% of U.S. school students, and poised to be one-third of the workforce by 2050, we need Latinos with dynamic skillsets not only to advance our community, but to advance the nation as a whole. Join education and workforce development experts to discuss expanding access to opportunities in schools to give more Latinos pathways to college and strong careers as well as targeted and effective investments to help those already in the workforce advance in growing industries. Our experts will also discuss policies, programs, and effective strategies to turn today’s students and workers into tomorrow’s leaders.
