#WeAllGrow Summit 2016 is thrilled to showcase the beautiful products of some of our favorite Latina makers, women within our community who's companies design and manufacture products available for purchase during this year's Summit in Long Beach, California.
For many of us, our influence exists largely in the virtual space and online world of social media or various websites. Some of us might even extend our influence to traditional media, where our influence is broadcast on television to audiences around the world.
This year, #WeAllGrow Summit 2016 is offering Latina Bloggers and Latina Creators the opportunity to meet, connect and grow with another important genre of Latina influencers - #WeAllGrow Latina Makers.
Here is the list of Latina Makers we have invited specifically so you can have the chance to engage with them at this coming #WeAllGrow Summit 2016.
