Latinx Professionals

5 Online Communities for Latinx Professionals to Follow

2020 has proven to be a rough year. We are feeling the fatigue of socially distancing due to coronavirus, yet are still coming together, even if it’s virtually, to demand justice, change, and stick to our goals for the year. A lot of things are on pause, but not our drive as Latinx professionals and creatives!

With so much extra time at home, it’s a good idea to place much-needed attention and focus on our professional goals. The right online communities can provide the necessary information, focus, and resources we need to make our career dreams come true–even in the comfort of our own homes. To keep you on course for success, we are sharing five online communities, aimed at Latinx professionals, that you should follow.

La Nueva Link

La Nueva Link is a community for “creatives and media professionals,” that provides support both online and in person. The platform includes a Slack channel, to keep you connected to all the latest news, interviews with Latinx movers and shakers, and informative suggestions from experts on things including Latinx books to read and songs to check out.

The network, founded in 2010, now boasts over 11,000 “connected Latina creatives, influencers, and entrepreneurs,” who connect virtually through wellness sessions, an online forum, mentorship, online resources, and more.
