Chicas Poderosas is a community working to bring Latina women in the Americas into the forefront of digital journalism. Created in 2013, the Chicas Poderosas movement is designed to increase the number of Latina women working directly with newsroom technology. The goal: to create a corps of Latina women digital media leaders and increase the diversity of voices in news. Through events, meetups and mentoring, Chicas aims to engage more women in developing news applications, producing interactive content, and integrating new tools into their newsrooms.   http://www.chicaspoderosas.org/
