2014 NCLR Annual Conference Highlights

Hispanic Executive attended the 2014 NCLR Annual Conference in Los Angeles, one of the nation’s largest gatherings of influential individuals, organizations, institutions, and companies working with the Hispanic community. As an official media partner of the event, Hispanic Executive supplied copies of its July/Aug/Sept 2014 issue to all attendees, and Vianni Busquets and Krista Lane Horbenko occupied an event booth where they displayed the issue, answered questions, and raffled off a feature to be included in the next issue.

Conference highlights included the “Adelante Workshop,” hosted by Nely Galán, which featured Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook, author of “Lean In,” and founder of LeanIn.Org.  The workshop was followed by “Latina Entrepreneurship in The Digital Age,” a presentation from top Latina executives at major tech companies, including Eliana Murillo (Google/YouTube); Adrianna Samaniego (Google); Nuria Santamaria (Google); Francesca “Cesi” de Quesada (Facebook), and Myrna Soto (Comcast), who will be featured in Hispanic Executive’s upcoming issue.

The conference ended with the 2014 NCLR Awards Gala Dinner, where former Hispanic Executive Top 10 Lideres cover star Eva Longoria was honored with the Raúl Yzaguirre Award for her activism and commitment to the Hispanic community.

The 2015 NCLR Annual Conference will be held in Kansas City, MO July 11-14.
