  • Inclusive Leadership by Design: Topics based on Batista’s Consulting Inclusive Leadership by Design Blueprint© and the application of its four leadership pillars: intentionality, authenticity, heart, and humility.

  •  Latinx Heritage and Identity:

    • Angela's story of transformation and success inspires and empowers audiences by blending personal motivation with academic expertise, creating an unforgettable experience that resonates long after the event. It invites audiences to explore how embracing Latinx/a/o identity, cultural values, and norms can propel success in educational and workplace settings. Some takeaways include: harnessing personal empowerment, understanding the cultural capital of Latinx/a/o individuals in educational and professional realms and exploring the intersection of Latinx/a/o experience in a broader global perspective.

  • Dr. Angela Batista is the lead co-editor of Latinx/a/os in Higher Education: Exploring Identity, Pathways, and Success, which addresses topics relevant to the experience of Latinx/a/o students and professionals in the United States and illustrates key elements that should be considered in the development of varied pathways to their success. The book offers the opportunity to reflect on key topics raised by authors like current American and global Latinx/a/o related issues and how to leverage Latinx/a/o identity, cultural values, and norms to advance Latinx/a/o success in educational and workplace settings.
