Adelante Movement aims to economically empower Latinas
Oct 26, 2012
HOUSTON, TX – “Do you know that more women in America are starting businesses than getting married than ever before in history?” asked self-made media mogul Nely Galán.
She also said there are now 52 million Americans of Latin-American descent. By 2050 that number is projected to reach 133 million.
Galán is the founder of the Adelante Movement. “The Adelante Movement is a movement to help Latinas get economically empowered. Latinas are the number one emerging economic market in this country. We’re out there spending trillions of dollars and yet there’s all these opportunities for us and we don’t go get them.”
This successful businesswomen and high influential Latina is sharing advice, insights, and inspiration to minorities worldwide. The Adelante Movement, sponsored by Coca Cola, is a revolutionary call to action that aims to empower and unite Latinas economically.
Passionate about encouraging the Latino community to step up, this Cuban-born immigrant is showing others how to take care of their own, and most importantly, create their own economy.
Galán was the first Latina president of a U.S. television network (Telemundo). An Emmy Award-winning producer of over 600 episodes of television in Spanish and English, including the FOX hit reality series ‘The Swan,’ she is also the first Latina to appear on ‘Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump’ on NBC.
Her movement comes to Houston Saturday, October 27 from 2:00 to 5:00 at the Hyatt Downtown. Other guest speakers include Sandra Cisneros, the Latina MacArther Genius Award winning Author and Nell Merlino who is a guru of teaching women how to start businesses from scratch.
Galán said, “You’re just going to walk out of there ready, energized and ready to go.”
