Events

 

In addition to social events throughout the year, ALMA hosts the following:

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH AND CINCO DE MAYO CELEBRATION
Early in the year, we partner with the Latin American Business Association to celebrate Latino culture and educate the community about Hispanic Heritage Month. In May, we add our own flavor to Anderson Afternoons by educating the community about the meaning behind Cinco de Mayo and celebrating Mexican American culture.

ALMA FIRESIDE CHATS
In the fall, we will partner with the Black Business Students Association, OUT@Anderson and the Women’s Business Connection to discuss how to be an ally to underrepresented minorities. Later, ALMA will host a fireside chat that allows members to share their stories and explore ancestry.

ALUMNI MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
The club pairs incoming first-year students with young alumni mentors. Pairs meet throughout the year to build relationships and discuss career goals. This is one of the first opportunities first-year students have to start growing their alumni networks.

ALUMNI CAREER PANEL
This event highlights the career experiences of Latinos in business. This event is followed by a networking session with food and drinks.

FACULTY LUNCHES
Throughout the year, ALMA gives students an opportunity to connect with Latino faculty through faculty lunches, which provide a forum for students to learn about the personal journeys of Latino faculty, discuss research and gain advice on how to navigate academics.

AMSA AND ALMA LOS ANGELES TREK
Los Angeles is home to one of the largest immigrant populations in the country, and the trek gives students an opportunity to explore Asian and Latino communities in the Los Angeles area. Club members will learn about one another’s rich culture and history.
