Words from Leaders – Laura Bejarano

COVID- 19 impacted everybody and Hispanotech was not the exception. Our in-person events were canceled, and as the Director of Events, my role was to move and switch our strategy to the online world. We knew that this was coming, therefore last year we were testing some online functionalities to live broadcast some events, but the progress was slow; the need wasn’t there. However, the pandemic hit the world, and we, as everybody, had to adapt to this new normal and the online platform was not anymore an option, but the ONLY option.

As a result, since April, Hispanotech joined forces with TRIEC PINs and other Hispanic groups to create a series of FREE webinars to address the challenges of living in a Pandemic, as well as the opportunities for professional development during quarantine.

To achieve our mission during these times, we have organized 16 online events in the last 7 months featuring speakers from global corporations and covering leading-edge technology topics and essential soft skills to grow professionally. This includes webinars, workshops, discussion panels, and speed Mentoring events. From technical skills like 5G and excel to soft skills such as communication and creativity. From talking about Project Management certifications, Cybersecurity and Engineering licenses to Entrepreneurship. We have also addressed topics related to the new normal, what are our rights and duties in the workplace or how to keep current during this time, taking advantage of free E-learning opportunities.

With these online events, we hope to play an important role in assisting Newcomers in the challenging journey of integration into the Canadian labour markets during these times, and also help Hispanic professionals, already working in their field to advance their careers during the pandemic.

Take advantage of this time and join us in our free online events tailored for you! All our upcoming events are always updated in the following Link:
