Aida Alvarez to be Recognized with a Lifetime Leadership Award at the 2013 Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit

Share this:
On May 11, 2013, more than 250 leaders in business, government, education and diverse industries, including MBA students, will convene at the fourth annual Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit at Stanford University.
.
This one-day gathering of successful entrepreneurs, political leaders, accomplished executives and students was created by Frank Carbajal, Founder of the SVLLS, who, four years ago, felt compelled to address the lack of opportunities in Silicon Valley for Latino leaders to come together to connect, dialogue and support each other.  Frank is also the Founder and President of Es Tiempo, LLC.
.
The 2013 SVLLS is excited to honor Aida Alvarez, an award winning journalist and investment banker who became the first Latina to serve as an executive officer in the U.S. Cabinet, appointed by President Bill Clinton.  A Harvard graduate, Ms. Alvarez serves on the boards of Walmart, Union Bank, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Latino Community Foundation.
.
The selection of Aida Alvarez celebrates her accomplishments, and highlights the significant leadership roles that Latinas have accomplished in this country.  Promoting Latina leadership is an important mission for the SVLLS.  The third annual summit included an afternoon plenary:  “Latinas Breaking Glass Ceilings and Defining Leadership in the United States,” facilitated by Edgar Quiroz, Director of National Workforce Diversity, Kaiser Permanente, with panelists:  Ysabel Duron, Senior News Anchor (Weekends) KRON Channel; Yasmin Davidds, Organizational Psychologist & International Negotiation Consultant, Best Selling Author & Women Empowerment Specialist; Alicia Morga, Founder and CEO, Refleta; and Angélica Pérez-Litwin, Publisher and CEO of New Latina Magazine.
.
We congratulate Aida Alvarez and look forward to meeting her at the upcoming 2013 Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit!
