We’re excited to share with you a special event that brings together Latina trailblazers at Google Headquarters in Los Angeles! The LATINAS THINK BIG™event will take place on Friday, October 11th and will be nationally broadcast through a Google+ Hangouts on Air and YouTube for viewing at home. This event presents a unique opportunity to gather with colleagues, friends and family to talk more about the role leadership and professional development play in our daily lives. By its very nature, the internet is a social medium. We gather to watch all sorts of events online—TV, concerts, entertainment, and award shows. Why not consider doing the same with a thought-provoking and inspiring event like LATINAS THINK BIG?
I am excited to announce that LBC will be attending the LATINAS THINK BIG event at Google Headquarters this fall and I would love for all of you to join us, virtually, in celebrating this immense event — one that combines Latina leadership and social media in a way that can capture the attention of both our offline and online communities.
Even though the live event sold out within hours of the announcement, we’d still love to see as many Latinas attend this event as possible, and I invite our #LatinaBloggers community to join in on the fun and get ready for some serious inspiration, whether you’re joining us in L.A. or watching us from home! We’re excited to have this opportunity to connect with you for a discussion about your future, your goals, your BIG ideas! Let’s THINK BIG!
I’m also happy to announce that Latina Bloggers Connect is an official sponsor of the LATINAS THINK BIG™ LA event. This means you will be hearing a lot from our team in the coming weeks about the event and how you can jumpstart your BIG idea. We also want to invite you to sign up to view the event online with a free virtual pass.
