Dear Hispanotech Community,
In this segment of our newsletter, I would like to reflect on my journey with the exceptional organization, Hispanotech, focusing on three key aspects that resonate with our mission: Connect, Succeed, and Give Back.
Hispanotech plays a crucial role in connecting newcomers to Canada with opportunities that help them succeed in labor market integration. Our various programs, mentoring, networking events, and volunteering opportunities are all aimed at creating connections. Networking within Hispanotech goes beyond merely establishing professional connections; it's about sharing, learning, and growing together. We harness the strength and resilience of newcomers to contribute to our society and economy. Recently, during a networking event, we witnessed how these connections transformed the lives of participants, igniting a sense of empowerment and belonging. The stories we have heard from individuals who attended our events exemplify the transformative power of networking and collaboration.
The "Give Back" part of our mission holds a special place in my heart. Having been a newcomer myself 10 years ago, giving back to the community has been incredibly rewarding. It is a privilege to utilize the tools Hispanotech has provided me to help others thrive in Canada. Despite our busy lives, volunteering can fit in and be extremely fulfilling. It is not just about giving time; it's about gaining experiences, making connections, and having a meaningful impact.
At Hispanotech, the Governance Committee works diligently to keep the organization running smoothly. We establish rules and procedures that drive our mission forward. This role has deepened my understanding of leadership intricacies and the importance of well-structured governance in driving meaningful change.
Lastly, my journey with Hispanotech has led to both professional and personal growth. We are dedicated to living our mission: connecting people, helping them succeed, and giving back. Together, we contribute to a diverse, vibrant, and inclusive Canadian society.
Thank you for being part of this amazing journey!
Director, Governance Committee
