Faegre & Benson, a leading international law firm with offices in Denver and Boulder, is sponsoring the Latina Leaders Forum's "Creating Opportunities" networking event this month. The event, which is also sponsored by the Hispanic National Bar Association (Region XIII), will take place on Thursday, April 21, from 5-7 p.m. at Faegre & Benson's office in downtown Denver.
The "Creating Opportunities" event will feature a panel discussion featuring Gina Rodriguez, partner at Faegre & Benson; Dolores Atencio, partner at GCR LLP; Stephanie Villafuerte, executive director at Rocky Mountain Children's Law Center; and Theresa (Tess) Solano, president and CEO of the Latina Chamber of Denver.
"Despite the wealth of talent, there are still very few Latinas in leadership positions in our community," said Rodriguez. "We need mutual support to cultivate such new leaders. The Latina Leaders Forum's ‘Creating Opportunities' event is a welcome occasion for members of Denver's Latina community to network informally as we work to increase our presence and scope. I encourage all of Denver's Latina professionals to join us."To RSVP for the event, please visit http://bit.ly/i5kcfv.
