The PowePowerful Latinas_logo seminar series was conceived as a project to compile AND SHARE a storehouse of wisdom from Latinas who have reached successful peaks in their careers. The project is an exciting one and geared to provide inspiration, personal growth and motivation for Latinas nation-wide. The goal is to motivate and inspire women – both young women who have not yet started their careers or are at the very beginning and also those further along in their careers – to learn from others’ life lessons.

Interviews have been conducted with a variety of professionals from all walks of life, with a variety of backgrounds and experiences – women in the sciences, business, academia, government, law, the arts and many other fields. Visit

Currently there are 20 chapters throughout the United States; the San Diego Chapter was founded in 1986 and has over 600 members. Visit
