Who We Are
Founded in 2018, Latina Professionals is a growing community of women across the Chattanooga area, gathering together to work, connect, and thrive.
We exist to redefine success for Latina women by providing the tools and connections they need to own their life, education, and career.
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.
"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 experience. We gather so that Latina women don’t have to overcome obstacles in a silo or fight to advance themselves 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. Because part of joining a community is about building up and participating in it.
