Edward James Olmos, the multi-talented actor, producer, director, and community activist, will be a Keynote speaker during the Friday Breakfast at the 2015 National Society of Hispanic MBA’s (NSHMBA) Conference & Career Expo taking place October 8th – 11th at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

His much-anticipated ’We’re All in the Same Gang’ address will take place on Friday, October 9th at 8:30am. The annual NSHMBA Conference & Career Expo is the largest Hispanic-focused Career Expo in the country.

“We are thrilled to have Edward James Olmos as a speaker at the 2015 NSHMBA Conference & Career Expo,” said NSHMBA Interim CEO Thomas Savino. “Not only is he an iconic actor, but also a very successful Hispanic philanthropist. His speech will be enormously well received and very captivating.”

Known as the “Olivier of the Latino world,” Edward James Olmos is an individual flowing with talent and creativity. In April 1999, Olmos launched a nationwide multimedia project called Americanos: Latino Life in the United States, a celebration of Latino culture through photography, film, music, and the printed word. The project was co-sponsored by Time Warner Inc., and designed to inspire Latino pride, and to build bridges among Latinos and others.

Olmos also makes time to participate in many humanitarian efforts. He is the executive director of the Lives In Hazard Educational Project, a national gang prevention program funded by the US Department of Justice. He speaks at an average of 150 institutions each year.

“Edward James Olmos is a perfect fit for the 2015 NSHMBA Conference & Career Expo,” said Debbie Cortez, NSHMBA Chicago Chapter President. “His personal journey to success as a Hispanic American will resonate with our attendees.”
