LATINA Style has announced its top 12 corporate Latina executives of the year. Now in its tenth year, the initiative honors highflyers selected by peers as leaders in the Hispanic community and wider corporate arena.
Each year the magazine recognizes the achievements of Latinas who are excelling in their respective fields in various industries across the United States.
The nominees have been selected based on excellence in mentorship, business impact, corporate leadership, and dedication to working with the Hispanic community both locally and nationally.
According to the LATINA Style Magazine, all the honorees are trailblazers who foster an environment where their colleagues are encouraged to succeed and reach their full potential.
This year LATINA received hundreds of nominations and 12 finalists were selected for the opportunity to be named the Corporate Latina Executive of the Year.
The winner will be revealed at the 21st Annual LATINA Style 50 Awards & Diversity Leaders Conference on Thursday, February 21, 2019, in Washington, D.C.
The conference will present powerful workshops discussing issues related to Employee Resource Groups in corporate America. It will also feature prominent diversity leaders from the companies selected to the 2018 LATINA Style 50, the Top 50 Best Companies for Latinas to work for in the United States.
