Fundada en agosto de 2018, Latina Professionals es una comunidad en crecimiento de mujeres en el área de Chattanooga y el noroeste de Georgia, que se reúnen para trabajar, conectarse y prosperar. Existimos para redefinir el éxito de las mujeres latinas brindándoles las herramientas y las conexiones que necesitan para ser dueñas de su vida, educación y carrera.
Why Latina Professionals?
Because we are tired of having Latinas at the bottom of our nation's statistics. It's time to change this and promote professional and leadership development for Latinas.
¿Por qué Latinas Profesionales?
Porque estamos cansados como latina de ser las ultimas en las estadísticas en EEUU. Es hora de cambiar esto y promover el desarrollo profesional y de liderazgo para latinas.
"People think of Latina women as being fiery and fierce, which is usually true. But I think the quality that so many Latinas possess is strength."
We Are a Community
Latina Professionals is a community that fosters connections of all kinds: friendship, support circles, professional mentoring, networking, and bonding over shared experiences. We gather so that as Latinas we don’t have to overcome obstacles in a silo or fight to advance ourselves in the workplace.
Together We Are Stronger
We believe that an empowered community is led by its very own members. We are currently home to many member-led clubs and support circles where members can talk, exchange, learn, and lean on each other. Across our group, Latina Professionals range from quarterly gatherings and support women events throughout Tennessee and northwest Georgia.
