PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP: Latinas Negotiating Leadership Success
When Latinas negotiate, to what degree should they disclose what they hope to receive from the negotiation and how should they go about revealing their desires? The answer to a great extent depends on the type of person they are negotiating with and the perception they wish the other to perceive of her. In order for Latinas to position themselves properly in any negotiation, they must learn to identify and adapt to their counterpart’s negotiation style. Attend this session to improve your negotiation skills:

EXPLORING THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE of CORPORATE LEADERSHIP: Discussion and “Insider Game” Viewing
Investing in leadership is one of the most significant steps corporate America and the Latino community can take together. The diverse talent that corporations are able to recruit into their management team and business operations is an increasingly important determinant of a company’s success.
This panel discussion will look at distinct perspectives towards diversity leadership development as it specifically relates to Latinos. Additionally, this session will include a briefing of “Insider Game”, the documentary film that brings to light Hispanic development and investigates the profound effect that Hispanics are having on shifting the corporate landscape.

EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS PANEL: Developing Skills for the Next Generation of Corporate Leaders
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are no longer small, informal groups for people with common identities and interests. With increased focus and attention by corporations to the specific interests of Latinos, ERGs now provide valuable resources for advanced leadership and growth opportunities. More than just focusing on career advancement, ERGs help companies expand into new markets, exert influence, create meaningful messaging, and build opportunities for shared success. This panel will investigate the evolving role of ERGs and how they can facilitate professional development, advocate networking, promote business growth and mentor the next generation through impactful support.

INSIDER’S LOOK AT CORPORATE DIVERSITY and RECRUITMENT
A development session for HR professionals, leadership development officers, as well as corporate and outside recruiters looking to benchmark best practices.
The Diversity Policy Disclosure of 2009 was established so that instead of just talking about diversity and how it is implemented, companies must now give investors facts that show the results of their efforts. As companies increase these efforts to recruit, develop and retain high-potential Latino professionals, it’s crucial they benchmark against organizations doing it well. Find out what the crucial do’s and don’ts are when working with outside recruiters and staffing agencies to scout for Latino talent, achieve multicultural branding, and further diversity recruitment.
