“This showcase is razor-focused on the speakers, topics and trends that most impact the careers of today’s Hispanic journalists,” said Manny Ruiz, founder of Hispanicize 2013 and himself a former print reporter. “This marks a new chapter for the Hispanicize event as we transform from a place where media solely come to cover news and celebrities to one that also equips journalists with high impactful content by journalists for journalists. Every day is jam-packed with journalist content and of course journalists can choose to attend ANY portion of the event sessions they want.”
