2021 SVLLS Summit

2013 SVLLS


We are honored to announce the 11th Annual Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit  (SVLLS), taking place on the new date, October 9, 2021. After 10 memorable years of hosting SVLLS at Stanford University, we have moved our event to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. This new venue will allow us to accommodate additional participants in a setting that pays tribute to the tech origins of Silicon Valley. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view portions of the museum during breaks.

Our theme this year is Building a Culture of Leadership – It’s Time / Es Tiempo.” To transform Silicon Valley into a place where its leadership reflects the region’s demographic diversity, a culture of leadership must have inclusion as a core value. When all contributors feel empowered to seek mentorship, offer suggestions, and innovate solutions, organizations transform themselves and potentially their industries. Organizations that understand leadership as the characteristic of many instead of the few retain talent, attract new talent, and enhance their mission. At the summit, speakers and panelists will examine how they have experienced and built cultures of leadership, along with strategies for making inclusion a central value in organizational culture.
