 ABOUT

Join HOPE for a personal and professional development summit in Napa, California. This in-person, 2-day event is open exclusively for  HOPE Leadership Institute® (HLI) alumnae and HOPE Binational Fellows and will consist of briefings and small group discussions focused on the most pressing questions we face as leaders: What does recovery and healing look like after COVID-19 and racial unrest? How can we each contribute to a stronger civil society? How do we shape and influence the role Latinas will play in our economy?

 

In addition to leaving equipped with new strategies to make us stronger and more confident leaders, the Summit is an opportunity to dig into deep questions, to reconnect with fellow alumnae, and to dream big together so that we can take action in support of each other.
