Over 100 attendees from as far as California, Colorado, Philadelphia as well as from the DC, MD and VA area, enjoyed 1-1/2 days chockful of learning, sharing and open discussion about, among other things:
– The basics of Social Media
– How organizations can maximize their Social Media efforts in reaching Latinos
– The implications of Social Media for Latino empowerment
– The vision of Latism regarding its role in bridging the so-called Digital Divide.
I’m honored to be part of the Organizing team for the Conference, heretofore known as The Six Latinas: Kety Esquivel [@KEtyE] , Sylvia Aguilera [@httponline], Alma Suarez [@AmericanLatina], Julie Diaz Asper [@JulieDiazAsper], Jennifer Lubrani [@meningioma] and yours truly [@ergeekgoddess].
Below, some scenes from the conference, to the beat of a very special song:
“Viva Latism!”, created on the spot by Mariachi El Rey. Enjoy!
