To facilitate diversity in leadership, FWHCC will host a two-part breakfast series. Fort Worth is fortunate to have several Latina entrepreneurs who will be sharing their time and experiences in a smaller, more intimate setting. During the first of two breakfasts, several Latinas who have successfully navigated a corporate environment will share lessons learned and offer participants an opportunity to seek advice about working in a more structured environment. At our second breakfast, Latina entrepreneurs will discuss their experiences growing a business and candidly talk about the risks and failures associated with their experiences. Both of these breakfasts afford participants a closer, more personal opportunity to learn from these accomplished women.
