“I had the pleasure of hearing Mickey Ibarra, Chairman and Founder of the Latino Leaders Network, at the 2017 Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit. Hearing Mickey share his own personal story was truly uplifting and he is helping make the dream happen for others via his work with Latino Leaders Network dedicated to "Bringing Leaders Together" to establish relationships, build unity, and share our personal stories.
Mickey has compiled powerful stories of Latino leaders in his book Latino Leaders Speak: Personal Stories of Struggle and Triumph. I am looking forward to reading this book and sharing the stories with my daughters. It’s a great book to add to your 2018 reading list!”
