Wintrust and Fig Factor Media present six virtual events under the “Conectando (Connecting) With Our Community” theme.

People are looking for programs to network with others and give them financial tools to help them in their daily lives.

As a way to share positive messages to Hispanic suburban communities, Wintrust and Fig Factor Media Publishing will present six virtual events under the “Conectando (Connecting) With Our Community” theme.

Jacqueline S. Ruiz, CEO of Fig Factor Media, is excited to be working again with Wintrust, an Illinois suburban financial institution since 1991, especially during part of Hispanic Heritage Month.

“We are continuing the magic of a wonderful six-year partnership with Wintrust Banks and some of its local branches,” Ruiz said. “During past events, we elevated and launched hundreds of Hispanic authors who shared their inspirational stories through Fig Factor Media’s popular 'Today’s Inspired Latina' series. These women are beautiful examples to those who want to follow their own personal dreams.”

The virtual events, which will be presented on Facebook Live at 6:30 p.m. CST and can be found on this link: https://www.facebook.com/FigFactorMediaPublishing/, will offer main presentations on inspirational themes on cultivating the power of kindness, being productive, capturing knowledge, and taking off on your dreams.
