In honor of Latinx Heritage Month, the Thomson Reuters Institute is pleased to produce a four-part series on identity, inequality, and access to justice in contemporary American society. Our aim is to unite professionals, policymakers, academics and more for a series of earnest dialogues around the modern-day Latinx experience.

The Latinx community is uniquely comprised of many different cultural influences and languages spoken around the world. On its surface, “Latinx” is a gender-neutral neologism championed by activists who sought to replace the Spanish language’s grammatical binary of masculine and feminine constructs with more fluid—indeed inclusive—vocabulary. Yet, even as “Latinx” continues to gain traction amongst academics, politicians and corporations, community-wide acceptance or assimilation is decidedly more complex. This session examines the nuanced realm of identity politics within a diverse, global society. Our distinguished panel will consider nationalist tendencies between different cultural groups as well as the unique challenges facing first generation Latinx members, the nuances between identifying as “Hispanic” vs “Latinx”, and how these inherent tensions challenge Hispanic or Latinx constituents in their personal and professional lives.

Sign up today. Online registration now available.
