A Special Latinas of the WRC Event
The Women’s Resource Center will host an interactive evening featuring Elise Rodriguez, a Cuban American performer, teaching artist, coach, and creative professional. The program will be in Spanish.
(October 14, 2022) The Women’s Resource Center continues to expand its Wonder Women Collective series with “Communication and Cultural Identity,” Friday, November 4, 5-7 p.m., at 6513 Street W., in Bradenton. The speaker is Elise Rodriguez, Esq., and the program will be presented in Spanish. The event begins at 5 p.m. with complimentary food and a chance to network before the speaker begins her presentation. Tickets are $15. RSVP at mywrc.org/LTN or call 941-256-9721. This is the last event of the 2022 Wonder Women Collective series before the launch of the 2023 season in December.
“People are the heart of any team, and connecting and communicating with care and intention is imperative to making people feel valued and included,” says Rodriguez. “By incorporating behaviors built around the framework of commitment, awareness, respect, and empowerment, the result is a space that is more open-minded, productive, and better prepared to see challenges as opportunities.” She adds that this interactive session provides techniques to amplify and celebrate unique perspectives and talents while finding moments of connection and mutual joy.
Rodriguez is first generation Cuban-American, fluent in Spanish. She teaches and performs improvisational theater in both English and Spanish nationally and internationally, and is passionate about empowering performers and nonperformers alike to revel in their own authentic creativity and joy.
Since the hire of a bi-lingual case manager in 2021, the Women’s Resource Center has increased its Spanish programming efforts significantly. Its ability to provide mental health counseling, case management and resource advising in Spanish is thanks to the generous contributions from Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation funding.
The Latinas of the WRC is a weekly forum for Latina women to discover skills, build self-confidence and find their own paths to success. Its mission is to inspire a celebration of culture, education, and unification and to employ passion and creativity in uniting Latinas. Topic meetings include empowerment, enrichment, conversations from the soul, and education.
