As you are aware, COVID-19 has been rapidly changing our lives, and all indications are that it will continue to do so for some time to come. As a result, we are all adapting our behaviors and plans in order to mitigate, confront, and eventually recover from this global crisis. At Hispanotech, we are also working hard to adapt and continue to offer value to our Members and to the community.
In person networking and events are not possible at this time, so we will start offering online webinars and virtual events starting in April. Do keep an eye on our schedule of upcoming events , which will include topics to help manage your career, finances, and well being.
We are also reviewing our 2020 Mentorship program, to take into account the added difficulties Mentors and Mentees will find given the physical proximity restrictions, and the consequent economic stoppage and impact on the job market.
Planning for our CCX2020 Conference & Career Expo continues, however we will not announce a new target date until we have more clarity. This is a full day event with 32 sessions in 4 tracks, and an expected attendance of 700 people, so we have to make sure public health conditions will be propitious and safe.
This is a good time to stay connected and expand your network using social media channels. Through our LinkedIn you will be able to interact with our 2,000+ direct connections, as well as our 420,000+ second level connections. In fact, COVID-19 has shown us just how connected we all are; let’s make the best of it!
Regardless of the current challenges and uncertainty, we know the time for recovery will come, and it will also present increased needs and opportunities to come together and rebuild, and hopefully the world will be stronger and wiser than before.
Stay healthy and stay connected!
