Emerging Leaders' Summit 

Our regional Emerging Leaders' Summits, offered through a hybrid model of in-person and virtual opportunities, focus on ambitiously driven students from HACU-member schools selected to participate and engage in leadership and career preparation workshops and panels. Students will be able to engage with HACU's partners that are recruiting for employment opportunities at this event. For each summit, two lucky participants will win a raffle to participate in the ¡Adelante! Leadership Institute (Student Track) during HACU's 37th Annual Conference in Chicago, IL in October 28-30, 2023.
