The course will be taught by Ellen Castro, best-selling author of Spirited Leadership, 2014 International Latino Book Award winner. Castro has been an exhilarating speaker, a global consultant and a trusted coach since the 1980s. Her clients range from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies to non-profits to schools and individuals.

What challenges do Latinas face in assuming leadership roles? How can Latinas cultivate networking skills? Those questions--as well as myriads of other concerns faced by Latinas as they finish their education and embark upon careers--will be addressed in this course. Class will meet on Mondays, 3:30-6:20 p.m., in Wh 312. No prerequisites. For more information, please contact the Women's & Gender Studies Program at 940-565-2098.
