Conversando: Building an Ecosystem for Latina Prosperity

Latinos now make up the largest share of the Texas population. Latinas represent a vital sector of the US labor market, though they experience the largest wage gap of any major group.

We'll hear from Texas-based organizations that are building an educational ecosystem to support an emerging generation of Latina youth in K-12 STEM education, career exploration, digital equity, and college readiness. Hear how investing in Latinas builds a resilient workforce.
