The 2020 U.S. census found that the Hispanic/Latinx population grew by 10 million people over the last decade, and nearly 20 percent of the U.S. population identifies as Hispanic or Latino. In this workshop, you will learn why Latinos are the second highest minority consumer group in the U.S, some marketing techniques and important cultural factors to consider. There will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions you may have.

This workshop is provided by The Learning Center for those in the nonprofit sector in Elkhart County or those serving Elkhart County. The Learning Center of the Community Foundation supports nonprofits as they seek to improve life in our community. This workshop is for nonprofit leaders; nonprofit employees in marketing, human relations and volunteer coordination; and board members of nonprofits.

Lunch will be provided.
