Families at Work: Intergenerational Latino Business

September 15, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Nova Southeastern University Center is hosting a panel discuss to celebrate and explore the achievements and challenges faced by intergenerational Latino businesses. There will be a panel discussion featuring members of the Capo family, who founded El Dorado Furniture, and the Cao family, who founded Vicky Bakery, both of which began over 50 years ago and have locations in south Florida and elsewhere in the state. This discussion, moderated by NSU faculty member, Dr. Nelson Bass, will shed light on their family stories, how the businesses were built, and what have been specific challenges and triumphs along the way, especially with respect to their work in south Florida.

The event will be held in the NSU Alvin Sherman Library, Cotilla Gallery (2nd floor). Parking is available in the parking garage adjacent to the library. This free program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant in partnership with Nova Southeastern University.
