Who We Are
Madrinas is a not-for-profit 501C(3) organization dedicated to the advancement of Latinas in organizations and to the needs of the corporate Latina. We are a national network of Latina leaders who meet virtually each month and biannually face-to-face.
Why We Exist
Providing a forum for the growing number of Latina professionals was the catalyst for the creation of Madrinas, and it continues to be our passion as we have grown into a vibrant national network of highly educated and accomplished individuals who are succeeding in many different fields and industries.
Madrinas came to life with the support of Working Mother Media and the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR). A unique organization, Madrinas is dedicated to the leadership development and advancement of Latina professionals. We celebrate our rich Latino cultures, serve as mentors and role models, and leverage our knowledge and experience to help shape the future of our talented women.
