Core Values


In business, as in life, integrity is everything. Working together. Within our organization integrity— it is our mantra. Confidence, respect and inclusiveness are imperatives. Non-judgment and non-solicitation are non-negotiable.


Our most valuable asset is wisdom gained through our drive for knowledge and the transformational experiences that we share with our peers. A drive for learning leads to an open mind. A drive for learning leads to an open mind, and an open mind leads to greater opportunity.


This is what we’ve done all our lives. It’s what allows us to grow and take risks. It inspires us to never give up, celebrating failures as well as successes. It’s an innate instinct born out of courage, creativity and eternal optimism.


We are not afraid of challenging conventions. We are in control of our destiny, and with that comes a great responsibility. To build value. Share resources. Help one another succeed. Cultivate relationships. To leave a legacy. We are willing to put in the effort to transform any experience into a positive one for all.

The Latino Professionals Meetup is a community for Latino/a Professionals & friends that enjoy our vibrant community coming together. That's me and you, and friends in Orange County and surrounding communities.
