Virtual learning opportunities were still the norm in 2021, and our latinXfactor™ webinars stayed as relevant and in-demand as ever. This program has been offering free online classes to our members since 2018, and it won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
This year, latinXfactor™ evolved to include both Sharpening Your Professional Edge and newly added Partnership Dedicated Program. The former program stayed focused on professional development and career readiness designed to help participants make the difficult transition from student to an early career professional.
The latter offering, Partnership Dedicated Program, focused on highlighting the culture, climate, trending topics, and career opportunities available for participants. Of the 13 total webinars, 3 were Partnership Dedicated webinars. These were grouped into two- or three-part series in order to provide members depth of knowledge and understanding. The topics covered included Diversity & Inclusion, Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurial Mindsets, Cyber Security and Latinas in STEM.
There were also five featured webinars from our industry partners to prepare our members for interviews at the National Convention.
