CTN CEO, Dr. Chavez was asked by the Austin Community Foundation Hispanic Impact Fund to be part of a panel to speak about Catch the Next’s Leadership Fellows Program and Youth Leadership Program. ACC Ascender Director, Alejandra Polcik, was able to join her.

Celia Israel, Former State Rep HD 50, delivered a monologue which set the groundwork for the panel discussion and group dialogues about Leadership Development-one of the Hispanic Impact Fund’s four impact areas and the newest strategy area.

This was the second in the Latino Monologues y Dialogues event series which began last fall with the purpose to learn and discuss how to build a stronger, more equitable Central Texas for Hispanic families, friends, and neighbors. The Hispanic Impact Fund knows that listening and learning are critical to creating a more equitable Central Texas. Through Latino Monologues y Dialogues, an intentional space is created for community members to participate in conversations for positive change.
