Claudia Romo Edelman: Elevating the Economic Power of LatinasClaudia Romo Edelman, with her extensive experience collaborating with global giants like the United Nations and UNICEF, stands as a testament to dedication and change. Her "We Are All Human Foundation" is a beacon for diversity, inclusion, and equity on a global scale. A recent MSNBC article penned by Claudia sheds light on the Hispanic community's economic contributions. The Latino GDP, impressively standing at $2.8 trillion, would rank as the world's fifth-largest economy if considered independently. But behind these numbers lies the true force: Latinas. Despite systemic barriers, Latinas have emerged as an "invisible economic powerhouse." The wage gap remains a significant challenge, with Latinas earning notably less than their counterparts. Yet, their entrepreneurial spirit remains undeterred. Latinas are establishing businesses at an unprecedented rate, with 77% expressing the desire to be business owners. Their educational achievements are also on the rise, with a notable surge in Latinas obtaining higher degrees. Their belief in the American Dream remains unwavering. From significant tax contributions to their growing presence in the military, Latinas are integral to the nation's fabric. However, the corporate ladder remains elusive. The Fortune 500 has seen only three Latina CEOs, and senior executive roles are sparse. A concerning 77% feel the need to downplay their heritage to assimilate into corporate culture. Yet, the entrepreneurial zeal of Latinas is undeniable. They helm nearly 2 million businesses. Despite that figure, venture capital remains a challenge, with Latinas securing less than 2% of funds. Investors must recognize that supporting Latina businesses isn't charity—it's an astute strategy. In Claudia Romo Edelman, we see the embodiment of resilience and vision. Her advocacy underscores the potential of Latinas, not just as an economic force, but as trailblazers in every field. It's time we acknowledge and harness the power of Latinas, for the collective benefit of all.
