A Leadership Luncheon: Palm Beach

From national television screens to millions of magazine readers, the road to success has been paved with challenges for Carmen Rita Wong as a woman of color. She is the daughter of immigrants, and has worked for nearly two decades in the very white, male worlds of media and finance. Wong not only managed to find and help build a tremendous and powerful community of women across all races, but also reinvented herself many times over, smashing through every closed door and ceiling along the way.

Join Hispanic Executive and Northwestern Mutual on March 2 for a Leadership Luncheon: A Woman’s Worth. Prominent Latino business executives, entrepreneurs, and local influencers will come together for an afternoon of high-caliber networking opportunities and thought leadership exchange featuring keynote speaker Carmen Rita Wong, author and founder and CEO of Malecon Productions. Hear from Wong as she shares her inspiring personal and professional journey as an American Latina of black and Asian descent and the secrets she found to navigating the world as it is, while carving a unique path.
