Keynote Speaker: SONIA MANZANO

For over 30 years, Sonia Manzano inspired, educated, and delighted children and families as "Maria" on Sesame Street.

Named among the “25 Greatest Latino Role Models Ever” by Latina Magazine, Manzano broke ground as one of the first Hispanic characters on national television. Throughout her career, she has continued to contribute to enriching diversity on television, on the stage, and in the educational realm. 

A first generation America of Latin descent, Manzano’s tale is one of perseverance and courage as she overcame countless obstacles to become one of the most influential Latinas in television.

WELCOMING DIVERSITY: Mastering the courage to intervene without alienating

It is critically important to speak up when witnessing bias, name calling or mistreatment of any kind. But if our desire is relationship-building, a more refined set of skills is necessary. It takes courage and restraint to listen for the hurt underneath an oppressive remark and respond without blame or guilt.

Please join us to enhance your intervention skills, confidence and ally-building capacity, whether at work, at home, or in the community at large.
