DALLAS, TX – Capital One will be the presenting sponsor for The Alumni Society’s 2016 Catalyst Dallas invitation-only event.
The Alumni Society’s first regional event of the year will be held from 6:00-9:30 p.m. on September 22, on the rooftop terrace of The Joule Hotel, located at 1530 Main Street in Dallas, Texas.
The society’s regional Catalyst events connect neighbors and act as a forum for inspiring ideas that lead to actionable change. These events bring together high-achieving Latino executives from top corporations and alumni from elite universities to share and network, in a more intimate setting.
The Alumni Society members will gather in Dallas for an evening of cocktails, dinner, high-quality presenters, and networking opportunities.
“As a company grounded in the principles of diversity and inclusion, we are proud to partner with The Alumni Society for the 2016 Catalyst [Dallas] event,” says Cinthia Lopez, senior director of human resources, Capital One Financial Services. “We value organizations such as The Alumni Society that foster an environment where Latino leaders can find resources and make connections to propel them to the next stage in their careers, driving innovation, and embracing the power of diverse perspectives.”
The Dallas Catalyst event will include a panel discussion featuring Latino leaders in the digital sphere. The conversation will center on the impact of digital transformation across an organization, how technology has transformed customer habits and expectations, and opportunities to leverage these changes.
“The Alumni Society values the partnerships we have with companies like Capital One that understand the importance of corporate diversity and inclusion,” says Sergio Fernández, executive director of The Alumni Society. “Partnerships like these create venues for Latino leaders to network with one another and connect with representatives from a leading company like Capital One.”
