More Than A Month

Wed, Sep 23 · 6:00p 7:00p

September 15th marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month, in reality; Hispanic, Latinx, and Chicano/a history are much more than a simple month. W and Young Latino Professionals of Wichita (YLPW) are working together to have an engaging conversation about Latinx history with Dr. Michelle Tellez, Assistant Professor in the Department of Mexican-American Studies at the University of Arizona.

Join us as we discuss how we can celebrate Hispanic, Latinx, and Chicano/a history in our everyday lives and workplaces; the value of these opportunities, both large and small; and how our unique perspectives continue to create opportunities for growth.

Don’t miss out on this conversation! Register today.
