This year’s Somos Inc Puerto Rico Conference theme is Strengthening and Supporting Communities. In the aftermath of devastating hurricanes and failing infrastructure, Puerto Rico continues to embark on monumental efforts to rebuild, re-stabilize and strengthen the island.
During the conference, our primary goal is to celebrate unity and harness the power of collective action. We will explore themes such as social and corporate responsibility, economic development, sustainability, and culture. The island is teeming with cultural diversity and remarkable biodiversity, where each community, while unique, forms an indispensable part of the whole.
By coming together, we can pave the way for a better future for all. As part of our commitment, we aim to raise awareness of the various communities across the island. Helps us promote and embrace unity, diversity, and collaboration. Together, we can fortify and uplift communities, creating a resilient and prosperous Puerto Rico and extending support to other Hispanic communities on the island.
