¡Yo Quiero Dinero Event - Showcasing Our Mentorship Program's Latest Cohort!"

Updated: Jun 11

Hello, summer, sunshine, and all things inspiring!

We want to invite you to our annual ¡Yo Quiero Dinero! Event!

Join us for our annual ¡Yo Quiero Dinero! Event on Saturday, June 15, at the My Arts Theater, where we'll shine a spotlight on women of color who are thriving despite the racial wage gap. Local women, alongside keynote speaker Dr. Xochitl Yadira Gonzalez, will share stories of resilience and empowerment in a society that undervalues them. Get ready to be inspired and motivated to enact change.

This year, we feature 8 local women as speakers, prepared by our expert mentors who are dedicated to helping you find your voice and share your story.

Our mentorship program, "Be Bold and Take the Mic: How to be a Speaker," is open to all members and provides essential guidance.

The co-hort offers:

  • Defining your vision for yourself or your business

  • Identifying your area of experience and expertise

  • Practicing on a panel discussion, live show, or business pitch session

These women have recognized the transformative power of storytelling in attaining financial success and have embraced the opportunity to share their narratives. On June 15th, they will stand before us to inspire.

In celebration of our progress, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all our guest teachers who have been part of this year’s “Be Bold and Take the Mic: How to be a Speaker” mentorship program. Over the span of 6+ weeks, they have enriched our online classes. Our schedule has been packed with classes on self-presentation for financial success.

These classes are available online and recorded, ensuring everyone who registers can revisit them at their leisure. Additionally, many of our teachers offer consultations to our cohort members, providing personalized guidance to maximize the program’s benefits. This journey is also a chance to bond, forge connections through shared stories, and expand your network in a supportive community.
