The spring is off to a great start at Latinos in Finance! We'd like to provide you with an update on our most recent events, as well as a calendar of events that LIF members will be attending in the month of May.
April Event Recap
Over 40 LIF members and Deloitte employees attended a thought-provoking seminar by Noni Allwood at Deloitte's office in San Francisco. Noni shared highlights from the research she conducted while consulting for the Center for Talent Innovation and writing Cracking the Code: Executive Presence and Multicultural Professionals. The seminar highlighted specific character traits exhibited by professionals in executive positions, and delved into the some of the challenges that Latinos may face in regards to having their leadership skills recognized. Noni challenged attendees to find ways to exhibit executive presence by challenging the status quo and being their authentic selves. Latinos in Finance would like to thank Noni for contributing her time, knowledge, and expertise to this event.
Latino Community Foundation Gala: Inspiring Philanthropy con Sabor Latino
Latinos in Finance sponsored a table at the Latino Community Foundation's 11th annual gala. The highlight of the evening was the dialogue featuring Darren Walker, the president of the Ford Foundation. Darren urged attendees to not only consider philanthropy as a means to share their wealth with the disadvantaged, but also work to reform a societal system that reinforces privileged upbringings at the expense of the disadvantaged. The gala featured celebrations of Latino culture, hosting local restaurants, winemakers, and music.
