On Wednesday, March 11, we invited our membership to the Capital Club to celebrate with us and we were overjoyed with the amazing turnout of members (and we were so happy to welcome so many new members!) A huge thank you goes out to all those that attended, as well as KQED for being our media sponsor. It was so inspiring to see a powerful group of Latina leaders collaborating together!
Likewise, we had the opportunity to announce our 2015 ELLA class and our new Advisory Board. Our ELLAs were able to complete part of their homework assignment by mingling with our members and finding someone they connected with in order to invite them for coffee and a chat. It all starts with taking the initiative and seeking advice and/or mentorship from others, so thank you to our members for welcoming our ELLAs and helping them along their journey! Thank you to our Advisory Board for joining us on this special occasion as well. We look forward to growing and thriving together with the help of our Advisory Board, our Membership, the community and, of course, our board. It’s an amazing time to be a member and we can’t wait to share what’s to come.
Special thanks to Silicon Valley Latino for providing us with some of the photos used above!
