Latinas Leading 2020

Seventeen women driving change this year

Every year, we honor and celebrate exemplary Latinas who are at the top of their game. For 2020, our annual “Leading Latinas” issue required a cover that was more specific. Instead of the 2020 Leading Latinas, these are Latinas Leading 2020—they are harnessing this year of incredible opportunity and driving change.
