LATISM (Latinos in Tech Innovation and Social Media) 2016 is coming, and I am happy to announce that I will be attending the conference as Top Digital Influencer Latina Change Agent! LATISM is all about us Latinos in making our mark, and I’m so incredibly humbled to have been chosen as a Latina who is making hers!
What is Latism?
For my readers who either aren’t Latino or who don’t run in blogger circles, I’d like to give you an overview of what this conference is about and what Latism is. LATISM, founded by Ana Roca Castro is a group of passionate volunteers seeking to make a difference in trending topics via social media. The Latism conference is an event dedicated to Latinos across all fields who are making an impact on the world and leaving their marks for future generations. It focuses mainly on business, Civic Engagement, Diversity & Inclusion, Education, Health, Policy, and Tech Entrepreneurship.
It’s also about helping us Latinos who are trying to make a difference, do it better and more effectively. A conference devoted to making us a driving force in the world and increasing our voices.
Latism brings us together at all levels. No matter if you’re a blogger, an activist, a journalist or a politician. Last year was a true testimony of that commitment because we got the opportunity to go to the White House itself and had the most empowering experience getting to know a little bit more of Latino influencers in government as Marco Rubio and the impact people like him are doing representing us.
Working Together for Greatness
We are still a vastly underrepresented portion of the demographic in all fields, and that’s what this conference is working towards eliminating. This year, the conference will have a little something extra, because it will be covered in Pixie Dust. That’s right. LATISM’16 is being held at Disney’s Coronado Springs in Florida!
So in addition to the wonderful conference workshops and panels led by industry experts, you can also participate in the 36-hour Hackathon event to help work towards solving critical issues in the Latino community!
The 3-day S.T.E.A.M Fair for American Latino kids from grades 5 to 12 is also very popular. Bringing together 2,500 students from 150 high schools, to encourage a deeper participation. They will have the opportunity to present their projects within the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math. Know a child that has a project to showcase?

Moving Latinos Forward – Get Involved!
When I look back and realize how I stumbled upon LATISM via a fellow blogger in a Facebook group, I cannot believe how connected I am with such a huge network of professionals. So humbled to be returning to LATISM’16 as Top Digital Influencer again, is ah-mazing! This conference is all about promoting the continued success of the Latino community, and it’s a fantastic event.
Before the conference in October, you can still join LATISM during the weekly Twitter chats, every Thursday at 9PM, where we talk about important topics that relate to American Latinos. I encourage you to attend using hashtag #LATISM.
Looking forward to October and the mouse! An epic location inside Walt Disney World with an exquisite venue, fascinating panelist covering interesting topics that cover the seven tracks: Business, Civic Engagement, Tech, Diversity & Inclusion, Education, Health, and Policy. It’s a conference like no other.
