2016 Latina Board of Directors

Different insights, experiences, and guidance to the table are all essential components for success in today’s global environment. Although women have made significant strides in the corporate workplace in recent decades, statistics show that women, especially Latinas, still have a long way to go to reach parity in corporate America.

With the increasingly Hispanic growing population and market boom, Latinas are critical to the future of every company. According to Catalyst, a nonprofit organization with a mission to accelerate progress for women through workplace inclusion, women hold 19.2 percent of the board positions of S&P 500; 4.4 percent by Latinas. Envisioning a seat in the corporate boardroom is the first step for Latinas to reach the highest levels of decision-making that can impact the U.S. economy.

Among the LATINA Style 50 are eight Latinas who serve on boards of the companies voted as the top 50 for whom to work. They willingly share their knowledge, offering insights to support the next generation of leaders. They embody the best of what a professional can achieve with the right balance of hard work, leadership, talent and passion. Whether it’s financial prowess, wisdom, leadership in business, government and community, here are a few Latinas that are defying the odds and are already making headway into the elusive echelons of corporate leadership.
