The 2022 theme, SUCCEED! How Women Entrepreneurs Make It in America” alludes to the struggle that minority women entrepreneurs and female founders face to start and expand their businesses in an environment of discrimination and barriers to opportunities. 

From 11:30 am to 2:30 pm ET, the event includes inspiring a keynote speaker, panel speakers of who’s who in each area of development, along with a Lunch Reception and their signature peer-to-peer networking session that will help women entrepreneurs elevate themselves and their businesses.

“We selected 3 areas in which most women entrepreneurs continue to struggle to achieve their own goals: Personal Power, as they have to confront the demands of home-schooling young children, caring for their parents, and running their business; Financial Wellness, struggling with funding and business barriers; and Business Innovation, all the new requirements and adaptation that the post-pandemic world is demanding from their businesses,” Susana G Baumann, President and CEO, explained.

From 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm ET, 14 successful Latinas will be awarded for excelling at growing their businesses or building their communities during the Leaders of the Month Awards Ceremony.
