SXU’s GSM & Career Services join ALPFA

Saint Xavier University’s (SXU) Graham School of Management (GSM) and Career Services are pleased to announce a chapter of the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) has been created.

ALPFA is the longest standing Latino organization with 81,000+ members assembled in 44 professional and more than 160 student chapters across America. “Our vision is to be the premier business organization for expanding opportunities for Latino leadership in the global market.”

Today, ALPFA is well-positioned to assist America’s Latino owned and operated companies and Fortune 500 to recruit, retain and develop professional Latino/Hispanic talent in every sector of the U.S. and global economy. ALPFA offers consumer insight, diverse procurement, maintaining a presence with both student and professional chapters across the nation, leveraging over 81,000 members nationally and hosting over 400 total combined annual events across chapters nationally.

“We are at a pivotal point in our society where we need to empower and support our Hispanic student population more than ever,” said Josh Baugh, associate director for Career Services.” Bringing ALPFA to SXU provides students with a national network of Hispanic professionals to connect with as well as professional development resources to elicit career growth and the acquisition of leadership opportunities. We are hopeful that this organization will help us to inspire and develop the Hispanic leaders of tomorrow.”

Business and Spanish Major Brenda Gutierrez has been elected the Chapter President here at SXU. There are currently five members in the chapter and they are looking to add more. If you are interested, please contact Brenda at gutierrez.b02@mymail.sxu.edu.
