El Observador Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit
May 25, 2011
At Stanford University’s Faculty Club last Saturday, May 14, 2011, the second annual “Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit” (SVLLS) was held. It’s hosts were ‘Es Tiempo’ (Frank Carbajal, founder of Estiempo and founder of the SVLLS), Hispanic Net, and Gracefully Global Group. This event was attended by an estimated 245 professionals, mentors, and students not only from the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, Texas, and New Mexico, also as far away as Utah Valley University, Provo, Utah.
The supporting corporate sponsors included; HP, Kaiser Permanente Viva Bien , Chevron, Abbott Labs; Genentech, Oracle, Intel, Duke Energy, CapitalWirePR, , Korn/Ferry International, National Hispanic Organization of Real Estate Agents; (NHORA), AlphaGraphics, EO (El Observador) and National Society of Hispanic MBA’s. This list of sponsors is indicative of the interest of corporate America in ensuring the identification of development of Latino expertise and talent.
The SVLLS agenda began promptly at 8:30 AM with a pre-recorded address by the Honorable Julian Castro, Mayor, San Antonio, Texas, who described the need for trained Hispanic talent in public service, industry, and many fields requiring knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Mayor Castro said, “There is a bright future and a big challenge for those who take time to prepare for their engagement, involvement and commitment.”
The keynote speaker, Dr. Armando Arias, Founding Director, Street Smart Think Tank and partner at Solution Strategies, made an excellent summary of “Street Smart Leadership: Creating Space for Change and Public engagement in Latino Communities.” Several interesting questions were posed during the Q & A period which followed.
