Abstract

This presentation details the impact that the United States Hispanic Leadership Institute Conference (USHLI) in Chicago had on eight Central Washington University students. USHLI allowed these students to attend luncheons, workshops, forums that taught cultural & political Latinx issues. Students also attended networking events, connected with students from other universities around the country, and how to be interactive leaders. During this conference, students learned about leadership skills and the cultural & historical movements of the Latinx population in the United States. Conference keynote speakers included leader and activist, Dolores Huerta and CWU alumnus & Benton County District Attorney, the Honorable John M. Haroldson. These motivational speakers inspired emerging leaders, such as ourselves to become activists within the Latinx community and continue paving the way for the forthcoming generations.
