NGL Collective has announced the launch of Hispanicize #UnidosTogether Virtual Summit, the largest virtual gathering of Latinx influencers, content creators, entrepreneurs and media and entertainment innovators grounded by NGL’s #UnidosTogether initiative aimed at being a force for good in the Latinx community. Led by NGL’s iconic Hispanicize platform, the FREE half-day virtual summit will take place on Wednesday, July 1st and represents a massive opportunity for brands to meaningfully connect with the Latinx audience during COVID recovery, and participate in the important conversation surrounding Black and Brown communities.
Hispanicize #UnidosTogether Virtual Summit will feature influencers, tastemakers, content creators, celebrities, executives and entrepreneurs and will proudly spotlight Latinx frontline heroes and small business owners alike. Roundtables, Keynotes and Break-Out sessions will cover topics spanning Activism, TV & Film, Media & Marketing, Music, Social Influencers and more wrapped in the positive energy with which Hispanicize is synonymous. Popular TV and Radio personalities Jessica Flores (@YoJessicaFlores) and Enrique Sapene (@EnriqueSapene), will bring their original styles and passion for Hispanicize and #UnidosTogether as co-hosts. Other highlights include interactive gamification with prizes, special performances, the LatinXCLNCE Awards, invite-only break-outs and much more.
“The virtual summit is a logical next step for our #UnidosTogether initiative to bring it all together in celebration of the resiliency of the Latinx community during COVID recovery, said David Chitel, CEO & Founder of NGL Collective. Our intention is to shine a positive light on the critical role that Latinx will play in the recovery of America while providing an interactive virtual platform through which to amplify the important conversation surrounding Black and Brown communities.”
Recently covered by ABC’s Nightline in an interview with NGL partner, John Leguizamo, NGL’s #UnidosTogether initiative has been releasing content on a weekly basis delivered via live social streams, newsletters, resource guides, editorial, family activities and the hugely popular Hispanicize Hangout VODcast which touts Entertainment and Business editions.
Co-founded by actor John Leguizamo, NGL Collective is a pioneer of new media and entertainment that connects advertisers and New Generation Latinx (NGLs) across platforms in-language, in-culture, and in-context. NGL acquired Hispanicize last year, and will be presenting the iconic event for FREE and in a virtual format for the first time on Wednesday, July 1st starting at 9am PST / 12pm EST.
