As anyone working in communications, marketing and public relations would tell you, this is perhaps one of the hardest industries to get into, especially for a woman. And when that woman happens to be Latina, the odds become even lower.
However, we have two major factors coming together that are really shaping the field:
One, the emergence of Social Media industry booming in spite of the decline of other media, and
Two, in the year of the Census, companies are finally understanding that diversity is an integral part of a company’s vision, strategy and continued success.
As International Women’s month continues, we are celebrating it the best way we know how: by honoring inspirational women who have demonstrated the drive, self-determination, and Latina passion needed to really make it in Marketing, Communications and PR!
Tonight’s Latism party aims to provide a platform for these amazing women to get to know one another, share resources and provide inspiration for those who would like to follow in their footsteps.
For this whole month and thereafter, this Link chain will live here. If you are a Latina in one of these fields yourself and/or you know those Mujeres who deserve a shout out, please list her name and the company website by leaving a comment below.
At the same time, we hope that it doesn’t stay on a link. We hope that before you, our reader, hire your next marketing or PR consultant, that you all come back to this list and hire one of these Power Latinas.
Please help us promote this list! Join us on Twitter from 9 to 10 to celebrate. Follow the #Latism Hashtag and enjoy the fun!
So who’s YOUR favorite Latina in Communications, Marketing or PR?
