LSN Communication Academy
As professionals, Latinas have surpassed their male Latino counterparts in 4 year college graduation rates. However, they still face challenges getting to the management and executive positions, especially in tech and other high paying positions. These challenges are also in knowing how to effectively negotiate salaries and being equipped with positioning strategies to remain in those positions. Likewise, Latina entrepreneurs, lack the presentation and pitching skills needed in order to attain investors, funding and visibility. LSN bridges the mindset and soft skills gap in order for Latinas to succeed professionally and grow into leadership through our LSN Communication Academy.
The LSN Communication Academy is a 3 month, group structured program concentrating on professional leadership through communication. The uniqueness of this program is that it follows our culturally relevant development in this area, taking into account your unique needs as a Latina. This Academy kicks off October 2019.
The program consists of a 6 Module curriculum to develop the following skills:
Target Audience Public Speaking
Dynamic Body Language
Negotiation Leading to Economic Impact
Pitching that Gets Results
Only 10 to 15 participants will be chosen for the third cohort.

"From Passion to Action" Start Up Academy
Do you feel that calling to start your own business? Are you passionate about helping others, but you are not sure how to get started or what steps to take? If you answered "YES," then this is the program for you.
As entrepreneurs Latinas are starting businesses at 6 times faster than other women nationally. Access to capital, resources, coaching and training, prevent Latinas from creating long term sustainable and profitable businesses that are in line with the lifestyles they want to create. LSN bridges that training gap while also taking into account the woman behind the business through the LSN Start Up Academy.
This is a 3-Month, group structured, 6-module specific, curriculum based program, delivered virtually and with group sessions also taking place virtually.
Participants will have at least two weeks in between to complete each module for their specific business.
