DOWNTOWN PHOENIX - It's billed as the largest gathering of Latina professionals in the country, a reunion partly dedicated to mentoring young female students to help develop future leaders.
The 20th National Hispanic Women's Conference "Latina Power: Legacies in Leadership" kicks off today at the Phoenix Civic Plaza. The two-day conference will feature professional development opportunities for more than 2,000 women from throughout the nation, while also providing mentorship and training opportunities to more than 350 girls from Arizona, organizers said.
"Young girls can oftentimes sell themselves a little short, which is why we offer health, finance and education training for them," said Rebeca Ronstadt, youth conference coordinator. "They need to know of the opportunities that are out there and what they can do to ensure that they reach their full potential." advertisement
Seminars for teens include from financial literacy, public speaking, career outlook and healthy lifestyles.
Adult offerings run through Friday and include a career and health care fair and sessions on wealth building, negotiating, homeownership, time management, political empowerment and small-business strategies.
"When you think about the number of Latinas in the Valley, you see why training sessions like this are so important," said conference chair Gerardo Higginson, the city's liaison with the Hispanic community. "It's about empowering them to improve their lives, and that benefits everyone."

Take the quiz: "What is your future career? (((w/pics)))"
Your intelligent. You're committed to your work. You like to have fun, but you are serious with you work and future. You only want the best for your life and your later family that you plan to make. You know that all the schooling will eventually pay off.
