April 2018 – 2 Networking Groups Created to Provide a Voice to Greater Gainesville’s Hispanic Community:
Integrating into a new community is hard, particularly when that community is in a foreign country with a foreign language. Within the thriving Latino population in Gainesville, there are multiple organizations dedicated to helping newcomers and professionals make that difficult transition, starting with building a network of like-minded individuals. Two such organizations are the Latina Women’s League and the Latin American Business Alliance (LABA).
The nonprofit Latin American Business Alliance, Inc. founded by DLHC’s CEO featured in the local business magazine as a networking alternative for the community. In addition to providing professional development resources, this organization offers networking opportunities and connections to Hispanics/Latinos in the Greater Gainesville community.
