Marilyn Alverio, is the creator and founder of Latinas & Power. With more than 20 years of experience in corporate marketing and sales, she noticed a gap in how Latinas were accessing strategies for success in their careers, business and professional life. In 2004, she established a network of like-minded Latina professionals who shared her commitment and passion to pay it forward. Today, the Latinas & Power has connected thousands of women in a spirit of camaraderi and support through an annual conference and social media platforms. Companies that support the network in partnership have enjoyed tremendous success in their diversity recruiting efforts, brand recognition, sales and community outreach efforts.
