In addition to exhibit booths and super fun sponsor activations and exhibit spaces, Hispanicize LA will include 4 main tracks that will cover panels and topics that will help amplify your career and gain knowledge in your industry:

Track 1: Latinx Entrepreneurs

Track One is focused around entrepreneurship, advancing your career and growing your brand.

Are you looking to take the next step in your career—whether that’s blogging, making jewelry, opening your own restaurant, launching a podcast, or running for office, you will find a panel or a speaker that will empower and inspire you. Learn from Latinx entrepreneurs that have taken an idea to a growing business. Not only will you gain motivation, but you will also have a chance to meet with some of the top jefes and jefas for one-on-one mentorship sessions.

Track 2: Latinx Creators 

Track Two’s content is geared toward creators, social media, marketing and content creation.

This track is not only for current content creators ( bloggers, YouTubers, Instagrammers) but also for those that aspire to become  professional creators. Perhaps you have a blog or an Instagram account but you have not learned how to monetize it. Maybe you already consider yourself a professional content creator but are looking to take your channel or social media presence to the next level—this track is for you. Learn from seasoned creators and the brands that work with them. Learn how to improve your current blog or Instagram by attending hands on workshops.

Track 3: Entertainment Industries

Track Three’s content is geared toward film, acting, music industry.

If you are a Latinx filmmaker or musician, you will learn from others in this field who have successfully carved out careers or had films green lighted. Expect exclusive Q&As with producers, actors, singers and label execs. We will also feature film screenings and LIVE music performances. Learn how to break the glass ceiling in these industries where minorities are underrepresented.

Track 4: Hispanicize U Mentorship

Track Four’s content is geared towards mentoring college students in the fields of tech and engineering.

This track will be conducted in partnership with Cal Stage Fullerton, UCLA, and other universities. Hispanicize U is a national initiative that allows universities to send several hundred of their best and brightest STEM students to attend Hispanicize 2018 LA at a reduced cost and have access to all other tracks of Hispanicize 2018 LA.

In addition to these tracks above, we will have keynote panels that are for everyone addressing the Latino social and political issues, such as immigration, socioeconomics and diversity and inclusion, that affect our community.
