Hispanic Access Foundation Hosts ‘Acceso: Leading Together’ Annual Event

Category: News Releases

Hispanic Access Foundation is excited to announce its annual event, Acceso: Leading Together will take place on Wednesday, September 14, from 6-8 pm ET. This year, the event will celebrate the start of Hispanic Heritage Month and commemorate the leaders of the organization’s networks that have helped build bridges of access to and from Latino communities all across the nation.

“Latinos have contributed to the flourishing of our nation in ways big and small, yet, they are often marginalized, misunderstood, and minimized within the American experience,” said Maite Arce, president and CEO of Hispanic Access. “We seek to shine a light on the countless hidden stories of strength and empower Latinos to lead in all sectors of American life, but we could not do it without members of our network, which is why this year we want to honor them during our annual event as a part of Hispanic Heritage Month.”

Acceso: Leading Together will include a virtual networking session during the first hour, where participants can connect with individuals from across the country. Following the networking event, the event program will be held from 7-8 pm. The program will include a celebrity keynote address by Jessica Darrow, best known as ‘Luisa’ from Disney’s hit movie “Encanto”, along with
videos recognizing five of our key network members and an awards ceremony.

“Our network leaders’ help is essential for our organization’s mission of making an impact, empowering and inspiring individuals to reach for a brighter future, for themselves, their families, and their communities,” said Arce. “It’ll be an honor to award five network members with awards for ‘Network Member of the Year’,’ Lifetime Achievement Award’, ‘Emerging Leader Award’, ‘Outstanding Young Professional Award’, ‘Environmental Justice Leadership Award’, and ‘Hispanic Access Partner of the Year.’”

Along with elevating the voices of our network, participants can also expect to hear key updates about Hispanic Access Foundation during the event from Arce. To learn more about Acceso: Leading Together or to register, please visit
