Hispanic Heritage Month Events — All Virtual
CHCI 2020 LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
September 14th – September 18th, 2020
CHCI 43rd ANNUAL AWARDS GALA
September 21st, 2020
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) hosted its Leadership Conference on September 14-18 and 43rd Annual Awards Gala on September 21 in an all virtual setting. In consideration of the pandemic, the nation’s premier Washington-based Hispanic nonprofit leadership development organization offered its signature events that traditionally kick off Hispanic Heritage Month via interactive programs, discussions and special events online. This year, there was no cost to attend, but registration was required.
In alignment with the theme Our Voice, Nuestro Poder, the CHCI Leadership Conference included an engaging lineup of national leaders, elected officials, policymakers, and influencers recognized for their vision, expertise, and influence in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. The agenda at this year’s unique all virtual setting included interactive discussions and plenaries as well as access to resources, and professional and leadership development opportunities for all participants.
At our virtual Awards Gala on September 21, we paid tribute to some of our community’s most distinguished leaders, and recognize the contributions of essential workers on the front lines this year. We also highlighted Hispanic Caucus Members in Congress, and showcase the emerging leaders in CHCI’s leadership programs. Through our events, we raised our collective voice and demonstrate nuestro poder.
