About Us

Northwestern Unidos: Latinx Professionals Coalition, was founded in 2017 by a group of staff who were committed to enhancing the professional experience of Latinx identified staff at Northwestern. Over the course of several months, the group charter and by-laws were developed and voted upon by the membership.  The overall goals of the group are to:

  • Create a space for expression and visibility across the institution
  • Build a network among Latinx staff and supporters for the exchange of information
  • Create professional development opportunities for Latinx staff to progress in their career
  • Foster a sense of community and belonging among Latinx staff
  • Support diversity recruitment efforts
  • Address concerns brought to its attention by its members
  • Collaborate and demonstrate solidarity with other Northwestern staff affinity groups
