2022 HWW Event

On May 9, 2022, our Hispanic Working Women event took place at the Missouri History Museum from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm with the theme “Leading with Purpose” sponsored by Midwest BankCentre.

This event was open to all people who identify as women, independent of race, ethnicity, age, or birth gender. It had the aim to foster a space for growth and learning, bringing together speeches from Latina leaders, educational panels, and networking opportunities for its attendees, with the goal of elevating, highlighting, and strengthening the position of women in the labor market and in the society.

This year we had three amazing speakers:

"I had the pleasure to attend a great event, where all women come together and give each other power and encouragement.

I was very inspired by all the speakers. I took to heart where Emiliana Guereca said, “it’s okay to want more!” As a Latina woman like most of us, I would always put others before myself and settle for less than what I should have!"
