What is the time commitment?
It is up to you! You can participate in as little or as much as you want. We will offer one networking a month (some virtual, some in person, with options in different areas of the city), one virtual or in person professional/leadership development program a month, weekly communications and office hours.
Do I need to attend all events and use all program perks?
Up to you! Take advantage of what makes sense to you, and your professional and leadership goals.
Are events held mostly in person or mostly virtual?
We are offering a variety of events in a variety of locations to be sensitive and include all our members. Some will be in person and some will be virtual; during the winter months, most of the events and programs will be virtual.
I no longer live in Northeast Ohio, is it worth it for me to join?
It depends on your goals and particular situation. Many Latinos from other regions have joined the program and have found value in the programming and events offered. Since there are virtual events, you will have the opportunity to join in easily. Keep in mind though that in person events will largely be held in the Northeast Ohio region and so you will need to decide you can attend those and whether the program provides you enough value without this option.
What are some examples of events and programs included in the membership?
Curriculum and resources include topics such as: leveraging Linkedin, how to become a board member, public speaking, salary negotiation, resume and interviewing skills, professional branding, all with a culturally centered perspective and approach.
