In 2017 Women of ALPFA celebrates its 15th anniversary. We are proud to be paving the way for a better, stronger future for Latinas in the U.S.

The goal of the 2017 program is to prepare Latinas to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to grow and sustain power to continue to advance professionally and personally.

This year, attendees can expect to hear from various Latina Executives within tech, finance, energy, and legal industries, who will share their professional and personal development stories, career advice, mentorship, sponsorship, and tends within the Latino Community.

Join us for an empowering evening at the beautiful Stonebrae Country Club in the Hayward Hills, and enjoy the views of the Bay while connecting with other like-minded latinos.
