Continuing the Latina journey to leadership.

Addressing the disturbing United States statistics that only 4% of workforce Latinas are in professional and managerial posts and less in elected offices, MANA de San Diego established the Latina Success Leadership Program to help Latinas move forward – to go further and go higher in the workforce

In 2015, in its inaugural year, the Latina Success Leadership Program debuted with four half-day sessions. Each session addresses a topic necessary to success and empowerment:


Program Dates for 2023:

Session I: Empowerment-
  • During this session you will identify goals by exploring your leadership journey and formulating a positive vision that will strengthen your ability and willingness to prioritize and take action on these goals. You will gain greater self-clarity as a Latina woman to move forward and leave this session with short and long-term goals to empower your personal vision as a leader.

Session II: Managing your resilience and communicating confidently-

  • Resiliency is essential for living in an ever-changing world. In this session you will learn practical tools for increasing your resilience and managing your energy to be at your best. You will focus on communication as it pertains to Latina women and leave with techniques for effective listening and communication.

Session III: Personal branding and networking-

You will continue to explore competencies that will build your sense of agency, confidence and credibility focusing on personal branding. You will explore the importance of strategically creating your network and building key alliances which will give you greater confidence in representing and advocating for yourself.

Session IV: Civic Involvement-
