The “Latinx Effect”

The growing importance of hispanic americans in the U .S. Economy is attracting increasing attention from economists and other analysts. Latinos are growing as a proportion of the workforce, and the latino population is younger, more likely to be employed and, by many measures, more entrepreneurial than the population overall. Prior studies have assembled a broad array of data and analysis to demonstrate the importance of latinos to America’s current and future prosperity – a phenomenon sometimes referred to as the “Latinx Effect.”


Workshop Format

Our programming will move beyond traditional panel discussions, as we will be offering workshops hosted at different venue- sponsored locations (2 consecutive workshops per venue) throughout New York City. Hosting partners and sponsors represent Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, non-profit organizations and start-up tech businesses. The Summit will close with a centralized Networking Reception for registered attendees at Cedric’s at The Shed at Hudson Yards.
