Panel - "Latina Pathways in P-20 Systems and Beyond: Answering the Call" Season 9 (2018)
/

This panel will discuss the state of Latinas in education, including the challenges and opportunities for engaging and supporting Chicanas/Latinas across the P-20 education continuum and beyond. Within the broader Chicano/Latinx student group, Latinas comprise a greater proportion pursuing undergraduate degrees in the United States. Yet, Latinas still face challenges throughout the public education continuum, particularly in postsecondary contexts. This intergenerational panel will present a broad perspective of how the Latinx community may thrive across P-20 pathways by offering a more nuanced understanding of select elements that contribute to success, resilience, determination and an unwavering commitment to the Latinx comunidad. Besides an overview of the state of Chicana/Latina progress in P-20 systems and beyond, panelists will cover the role of mentorship and programs in undergraduate success, the plight of first-generation Latinas in postsecondary contexts, and moving beyond full scholarship, mentorship and legacy building.
