Commerce, TEXAS-Texas A&M University-Commerce partnered with The University of Texas at Arlington to sponsor the first educational workshop for Latina business owners at the LATINA Style Business Series in Dallas, Texas.
The LATINA Style Business Series was a one day education and business development program focusing on finding solutions for some of the most critical business challenged faced by a Latina entrepreneur. The event was held on March 22, 2012.
"This educational workshop stressed the importance of advanced education and technology to the attendees by hearing it from the experts themselves," said Robert E. Bard, president and CEO of LATINA Style, Inc. "Technology and social media are constantly evolving, and it is important for Latina business owners to keep up with these growing media habits to have a successful business. We hope that this educational workshop was just the first of many, and we were fortunate to have UT-Arlington and A&M-Commerce as our sponsors for this crucial workshop."
Panelists from both universities shared some of the fundamentals and benefits of how education has a major impact in entrepreneurial success. Attendees learned unique tools on creativity and personal growth. Topics included social media and ways to advance a business.
In its 14th year, the LATINA Style Business Series was created by Anna Maria Arias, founder of LATINA Style Magazine. The Anna Maria Arias Foundation continues her mission as it works to ensure the growth, reach and impact of Latina entrepreneurs nationwide through programs, services, and resources that help establish and build successful businesses.
