Barrios, L.H.D., a presenter from The Gallup Organization, will dedicate two hours to “The Seven Demands of Leadership.” She will discuss leadership demands she believes are essential for Latinas to master: Visioning, Maximizing Values, Challenging Experience, Mentoring, Building a Constituency, Making Sense of Experience and Knowing Self.
