Symposium Learning Overview:

Our sessions aim to be  participatory and engaging to animate this year’s theme, Tejiendo Latino Leadership: Where There is One, There Are Many. Each session and event invites you to consider how leadership in your actions, work, and scholarship can be a resource, practice, methodology, framework, and/or tool to enhance and promote community leadership.

  • Leadership Development: (e.g., trauma-Informed Skill Building, reconstructing teaching and learning experiences that center our full humanity; creating leadership development environments where Latinos can show up as their whole selves; cultivating opportunities for developing critical consciousness; integrating intersectional perspectives in teaching and learning to promote reflection, awareness, and action) 
  • Collective Leadership and Organizing: (e.g., leveraging community organizing to engage in legislative and policy work; forging new paths to transform and resist the violences we exist within; engaging in collective action to impact institutional change)
  • Research, Evaluation and Assessment Tools & Practices (e.g. modeling practices and program design that integrates evaluation and assessment in the sustainability and growth of leadership development) 
  • Ancestral & Traditional Knowledge: (e.g., honoring legacies passed down by ancestors that allow for our continual transformation; reshaping knowledge of our lineages that move us toward healing and personal development)
  • Skill-Building: (e.g. public speaking, digital marketing, fundraising and development, personal brand, strategic development, good governance, and other practices to improve our abilities to lead and guide organizational movements)
