Join #ALDIALIVE for the premier celebration of U.S. Latinas and multicultural women in leadership in our region and beyond!
This celebration of #ALDIAWomenofMerit is a media event and an annual edition produced during Women’s History Month focused on acknowledging and celebrating the new faces emerging in positions of leadership representing our changing demographics. Of the 112 nominations we received in the categories of Corporate, Education, Entrepreneurship, Non-profit, and Public Service, our Advisory Board selected 15 distinguished honorees.
It features keynote speeches from Latina luminaries, thought-provoking group discussions, and one-to-one conversations about issues confronting the advancement of Latinas and women in general in 21st Century America.
