Hartford Stage to Host INSPIRED TO SUCCEED - CONNECTICUT LATINOS AND LATINAS AT WORK Panel, 4/17
Join the conversation at Hartford Stage for a free Community Panel Discussion, "Inspired to Succeed - Connecticut Latinos and Latinas at Work," will take place on Thursday, April 17, following the 7:30 p.m. performance of Matthew Lopez's Somewhere.
Each panelist will speak about his or her own success story as a Latino or Latina thriving and working in Connecticut. These personal successes, mirrored with the primary themes of Somewhere, will serve as case studies to inspire the hopes and dreams of thousands of Latinos and Latinas within the Hartford community.
The discussion will be moderated by Bessy Reyna, poet, member of the Connecticut Critics' Circle and Arts Editor for Identidad Latina. The panelists include Dr. Julio Morales, Jr., Executive Director of Connecticut Latinas/os Achieving Rights and Opportunities; Yanil Teron, Executive Director of the Center for Latino Progress; Marilyn Alverio, CEO of Ethnic Marketing Solutions; Werner Oyanadel, Executive Director of CT Latino and Puerto Rican Affairs Commission; and Priscilla Lopez, Tony Award-winning actress and star of Somewhere.
"Inspired to Succeed - Connecticut Latinos and Latinas at Work" is sponsored by CT At Work, a CT Humanities Program.
