Commemorating the First National Latina Day Luncheon in San Antonio

The First National Latina Day Luncheon in San Antonio, “Latinas con Fuerza,” will take place on August 21, 2023, at Embassy Suites by Hilton at Brooks starting at 11:30 am.

It will highlight issues impacting Latina entrepreneurs and feature a panel of distinguished guests making an impact in San Antonio and South Texas. Panelists will include Dr. Lyssa Ochoa, Addinelly Moreno Soto, Erika Prosper Nirenberg, and Pat Jasso. 

The Latinas con Fuerza luncheon will gather over 200 attendees in South San Antonio from across South Texas to acknowledge and celebrate Latina entrepreneurs and business leaders’ incredible contributions to our city. Their passion, resilience, and determination have enriched our business landscape and significantly shaped our community and the South Texas Region.

“The South Texas Business Partnership has consistently recognized the immense value that all women and business leaders bring to our region. We believe in empowering all Latina entrepreneurs and providing businesses with the resources and support they need to thrive. By celebrating National Latina Day, we aim to amplify Latina voices, showcase their achievements, celebrate the momentum, and keep pressing forward,” says Rebecca Viagran, President and CEO of the South Texas Business Partnership.

For the past 41 years, the South Texas Business Partnership has worked to be a catalyst for bringing our area’s business leaders together as advocates for change and further development of our region.

The South Texas Business Partnership (SoTX), formerly the South San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, has, for the last 41 years, been the voice for investment and economic prosperity in South San Antonio. In 2022, SoTX officially rebranded and repositioned to represent the interests of South Texas, with a vision of making this region a global leader in economic competitiveness and investment within the communities across the region.
