I was responsible for launching Dun & Bradstreet’s MWBE (minority and women-owned business enterprise) division into the U.S. Hispanic market. In this role, I developed affinity marketing relationships and member campaign strategies, negotiated and structured corporate co-marketing promotional partnerships with such companies as IBM, Microsoft, NationsBank, Mastercard, American Airlines, Pitney Bowes and Avis. I also created alliances with national business and professional organizations to provide resources on a grassroots level for the emerging small and home-based business market. In my role with D&B, I maintained key Congressional and White House relationships and served as liaison on industry-specific committees by appointment of Congress.
My lifelong passion for my Hispanic heritage fueled a personal vision to empower women’s business and entrepreneurial achievement. I founded the Business Women Leadership Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that produced a landmark study on the educational, professional and entrepreneurial accomplishments of Hispanic women in America, and convened a national summit in Washington, D.C. in partnership with the White House, SBA, Congressional lawmakers and corporate partners. The summit was attended by more than 300 delegates from across the country and represented chambers of commerce, professional associations, higher education and business incubators. I built partnerships with IBM, Ameritech, American Airlines, Dun & Bradstreet, NationsBank, Banco Popular, Smith Barney, Allstate and Levi Strauss to underwrite the cost of the campaign, and was recognized by the Euro-American Women’s Business Council as one of the world’s leading advocates for women’s business and entrepreneurial achievement.
