Latinas in the Board Room

Top board directors and CEOs are paving the way for both women and Latinos in the corporate boardroom. Currently, the vast majority of board members in the Fortune 100 continue to be white men with women representing about 19 percent of corporate board directors. Yet although women of color are considered one of the fastest growing and most influential segments in business, only about 4 percent serve on a board of directors. The Women’s Leadership Foundation is taking an active role in raising the awareness of this issue and improving these statistics by ensuring Latinas participate in Corporate Board Bound, and by hosting a variety of workshops focusing on Latinas. Today Regina Rodriguez, Senior Partner, Hogan Lovells, and Cynthia Mares, Associate Judge, Aurora Courts, are members of the 2017 Corporate Board Bound cohort.

Congratulations to Nilsa Guerrero-Mahon who is helping change the statistics with her recent board placement. Nilsa is a Corporate Board Bound Alum who joined the board of NioCorp in September 2017. Her leadership skills,  Senior Executive experience and financial expertise will make an impact. Congrats Nilsa & NioCorp!
