Following the awards ceremony, there was a debriefing at the White House by senior officials of the Bush administration. The guest speaker was Anna Escobedo Cabral, Treasurer of the United States.

Prior to the Awards Luncheon, Latina Style hosted a Best Practices in Diversity Conference, which addressed companies' concerns and profiled some of the most successful programs of the Latina Style 50 companies. Marina Anderson represented P&G as one of the panelists for the Recruitment, Promotion and Retention session.

The Latina Style 50 awards ceremony brought together the top Latinas in corporate America, at the White House, and in the Federal government as well as influential leaders of the Hispanic community. Attendees at the conference were Corporate CEOs, chief diversity executives, marketing and human resource officers, Latina entrepreneurs, government decision-makers, and other national experts on diversity in the workforce.

The annual national listing of the fifty companies providing the best professional opportunities for Latinas is the most respected evaluation of corporate America's policies and practices as they pertain to Hispanic working women. The list is the result of an extensive search involving more than 600 of the most respected corporations in the United States.

Education : NKU hosting Latino Students Leadership Workshop

Thanks to NKU's Latino Student Affairs under the direction of Leo Calderon, Latino students at NKU had the opportunity to learn more about how to become a Leader, and how to provide leadership in the community.

Leo Calderon was supported in this new initiative by Lisa Arraya, Dr. Al Pinelo, and Maria Clay, as well as Maria Molina from P&G.

It was impressive to see so many Latino students participating in this program, especially since they had to be there on Saturday morning at 8:30 AM. It is clear that NKU and its Latino Student Affairs Office do something right if they are able to motivate students to dedicate part of their Saturday to such a workshop. Congratulations!!!!
