María Román Dumén
2nd Vice President
I am deeply humbled to have become the 3rd President of 100 Hispanic Women in January. I am succeeding Milagros O’Toole who has done an exemplary work. Ms. O’Toole going forward will have President Emerita status within the organization. I am deeply committed to leading the organization as I am humbled to be following Presidents who have been pioneers totally committed to the organization and to the community they serve. This is the opportunity of lifetime dedicating service to women and the Latino community. After working at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in the Department of OB/GYN developing programs, staff development strategies and negotiating contracts and currently as faculty at Hostos Community College along with serving on Human Rights Commission in Rockland County since 2008 I hope to use all my experiences to move the organization forward.
Our organization was founded to meet the unmet need of developing and supporting professional Latinas. In expanding that commitment we wanted to support Latina students with funding and development strategies to aide them with attending college and transitioning into the labor market, in response in 2002 The Young Latina Leadership Institute emerged. Finally, identifying that education is transformational we wanted to target those at the very beginning of their schooling and we were successful bringing to fruition the Bronx Global Leadership Academy for Girls.
We’re not done and we need your help. Please consider supporting our organization. Share ideas, strategies and guidance on next steps. Collaboratively we can make a difference.
With Warm Regards;
Nancy Genova, MPA
