DDLM is a statewide leadership and empowerment conference dedicated to the advancement of Latinas. The Día de la Mujer Conference began in 1994 and has become an institution in the Midwest region for the empowerment of thousands of Latinas that have attended each year. The success of this community initiative is due to the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and sponsors each year. The goal of the conference is to empower, motivate, inspire, train, and work collectively to expand opportunities for Latinas and all women. According to the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics – Latinas in the U.S. (2015), Latinas have the lowest high school graduation rate compared to other major subgroups and are less likely to complete a college degree. Furthermore, the college completion rate is 19 percent compared to nearly 44 percent of white women. Many of the barriers that hold Latinas back relate to poverty and access to health and education. Historically, Latina women experience more adversity and challenges on their paths to success than women do from other cultural/language groups and this conference aims to close the gaps that exist.
DDLM has been disseminating information & data driven strategies to attendees through a series of informative workshops, keynote speakers, and exhibitions. Each year we offer over 30 workshops that focus on business, finance, education, health, community development, inter-personal growth, self-empowerment, STEM, and leadership. DDLM is open to everyone regardless of cultural identification, gender or ethnicity and serves as a great cross-cultural learning experience. Please share this wonderful opportunity with your networks!
