The Latinx Student Leadership Summit (formally known as the Hispanic Student Leadership Summit), now in its seventh year, was created as an effort to bring Latinx leaders together to share innovative and creative best practices with one another, as well as collaborate with Google's Latinx leadership to benefit your university, organization, and community.

Acceptance to the 2023 Latinx Student Leadership summit also includes access to the Google Buddy program, where you will be placed in small groups of other selected applicants then paired with tech and non tech Googlers, who will provide personalized tech readiness programming, social community, and more.
