Happy New Year!
Happy New Decade!
2020 is here and we are carrying over great momentum from 2019 into the new decade!
We would like to take this opportunity to reflect on all that we’ve been able to accomplish collaboratively. Much of our impact has been delivered via our Creo En Ti initiatives. Through our Inspire Higher Program, we’ve visited fifteen high schools and community colleges and delivered panel presentations. Through our Latino Leaders “Fireside Chats” we’ve featured five remarkable leaders and through our "College Declaration Day" celebrations we have recognized 40 stellar high school students who are now attending notable universities throughout the country. Additionally, we have paid tribute to 100 exceptional leaders via our SVL Latino Leaders Awards Ceremonies (40 Under 40 Latinos2Watch, Trailblazers and Emerging Leaders and the 2019 Latino Leaders Awards Ceremony) and we’ve brought professionals, students, and various collaborators together through our inaugural Raices – Creo En Ti Summit in partnership with Santa Clara University. Lastly, we are delighted to report that we’ve reached several million globally through our SVL Online magazine and social media channels.
Once again, this would not have been possible without your collective support, investment, resources, and partnership. And for this, we want sincerely thank you all for your continued support. We want to give a special thanks to our Cultura Ambassadors, Creo En Ti Business Ambassadors, SVL Advisory Board Members, collaborators, sponsors, and clients. Thank you for believing in us, our mission, vision, initiatives and our business offerings.
As a result, we’ve had a tremendous impact in our community and your feedback and testimonials have let us know that we are on the right track.
We would also like to acknowledge all of our collaborators, ambassadors, sponsors, and clients by listing them below. Thank you!
