HPE Juntos employee resource group partnered with HITEC (Hispanic IT Executive Council) and Yacanex to hold our 2nd annual Latina Emprendedoras event on Saturday, October 20th.

HPE leader and HITEC EEP program participant, Carlos Quezada,  hosted and organized the event.

    The keynote speaker was Alejandra Arce, the local Univision television anchor.

Some of the speakers included:

  • Mexican General Consul who shared support for women and their endeavors
  • Office of Immigrant Affairs - City of San Jose

This year over 80 women participated in the event, more than doubling the amount that attended the first year the program launched.  Feedback was extremely positive and there are some great ideas in place for planning the event next year.

We can't wait to see the impact the lessons learned have and the difference each of our participants makes in our community.  So very proud of Carlos, Juntos ERG and our community partners for finding a way to impact our future today.
