The National Hispana Leadership Institute (NHLI) is excited to recognize Nely Galan as the 1989 Executive Leadership Program (ELP), Hermana de la Semana. Nely Galan is an excellent example of a self-made, formidable Latina in a position of power. “My experience as a National Hispana Leadership Institute (NHLI) fellow changed the course of my life. I was working hard to carve out a career in television and had started my own business four years prior to NHLI. When I heard that I was selected as a fellow, I felt chosen." Said Nely Galan.
Additionally, she is frequently cited for her influential work outside the industry serving as a Board member for Count Me In, the Center for the Advancement of Women, and The Smithsonian Institute. Nely Galan is an icon of Latina empowerment and is one of the entertainment industry’s savviest talents. Nely Galan embodies her energy and drive as a true representation of Latina leadership. Most recently, Nely leads The Adelante Movement, a grassroots crusade to unite Latinas politically, economically and socially.
“Coca-Cola is sponsoring The Adelante Movement, to bring Latinas like you and my Hermanas information on jobs, government contracts, start-up funds for businesses, and franchise opportunities,” said Nely Galan. “My dream is that we are all economically successful and can bring our children the future they deserve! Latinas are the largest emerging economic market in the world; it’s time we get the economic power that is ours for the taking! You can join me on this journey.
