The 30th Annual Latina History Day Conference® was an event that united Latinas from across the United States to celebrate our shared heritage, recognize our communities' resilience, and set us on a the path to build a better future. Latina History Day® was founded in Los Angeles, but in 2021 we went virtual and expanded our reach to Latinas everywhere.
Our March 10-12 programming was specifically designed to meet the needs of Latina professionals; we offered resources, skill development, and networking opportunities to advance their careers and enrich their lives. On March 13, we dedicated the conference to youth-exclusive programming. In addition to inspiring keynotes and informative panels, we had virtual face-to-face networking sessions, access to our Comadre Network Expo, exclusive raffles, special guest appearances y mucho más!
This year's theme - THE RESILIENCE OF HOPE - encouraged us to reflect on the incredible resilience and leadership of Latinas during the past year, and to embark on a new chapter guided by hope and progress. We got re-charged and resolved for an incredible 2021 with fellow Latina professionals and speakers who are leading the charge in their fields and creating positive change in their communities.
