USHLI Conference to Convene in Chicago

2019 USHLI Conference will host the Premier Leadership Conference in Chicago with Scholarships.

About the USHLI National Conference

The United States Hispanic Leadership Institute (USHLI), an award-winning national 501(c)(3) organization, will host its 2019 National Conference at the Sheraton Grand Chicago Hotel from February 14 -17, 2019. Over the span of four days, participants will attend a series of forums, workshops, and seminars that coincide with the conference’s theme, Defend Democracy: Aquí y Ahora.

Over the last 37 years, the USHLI Conference has become the premier Hispanic leadership conference in the nation, attracting a complete cross-section of our leadership community and involving all ancestry groups. Over 6,500 present and future leaders representing 40 states will attend various events throughout the four days. A survey of participants in 2018 found that 89% were 18-34 years of age, 63% were women, and 85% were attending or had already completed college. Most conference participants are or will become the most influential Hispanic leaders of their generation and will help govern our cities, schools, states and, indeed, a nation that will become 25% Hispanic during their lifetime.

This leadership conference is an extraordinary opportunity for students and young professionals to meet recruiters, national policy-makers, and future employers. The conference brings participants together to develop and/or strengthen their leadership skills and to grow as servant leaders. Participants will hear nationally prominent, standing-ovation quality speakers and workshop presenters who are highly interactive and experts in their field.
