Every year, Latinas in the United States have the opportunity to grow, learn and create successful relationships that will help them develop in personal and professional areas. 2021 is no exception.
Latinas Lifestyle Fair, organized by Hispanic Media, comes as an allied event, a space of reunion and healing after a very hard year that has left us marked for life, but that has allowed us to understand and appreciate our time.
The event, planned with full anti-covid security protocols, will feature seminars on Latinas During COVID-19, Latinas WorkForce Development, Mental health: The new norm and Latina Business Owner. It will take place on August 27 at El Concilio 141 E. Hunting Park Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19124. Admission will be free for this segment of the event.
In addition, there will be recreational activities, fitness and entertainment, food tastings, COVID tests, and surprise prizes. All this will be from 10 am to 3 pm.
Then, at 6 p.m. comes the most special moment when Hispanic Media will proudly present the Powerful Latinas Award once again.
The awards will be presented under different categories such as mentor, entrepreneur, influencer, caregivers and educator.
