On March 29th, our President Maria Pesqueira, along with Adela Cepeda, an Independent Corporate Director, and Cristina De La Rosa from our partner Erie Neighborhood House, participated in “Latino Voices: A WTTW News Community Conversation.”
The discussion, hosted by Araceli Gómez-Aldana from WBEZ Chicago, highlighted Latinas in Chicago for Women’s History Month and talked about the adversity they face and their role in their communities.
Maria talked about her “sheroes” and how they have inspired her throughout her life and career. She also spoke about the pandemic’s impact on Latinas from the perspective of social determinants of health and the need for more female representation in philanthropic leadership.
