This event will take place at the state-of-the-art Hilton Americas in Houston, Texas, and will honor the distinguished achievements of 20 successful and inspirational U.S. Hispanic women who have made significant impacts in the fields of business, government and academia.
Recent honorees and finalists have included Dr. Sandra Hernandez, CEO, San Francisco Foundation (2008 WOY winner); Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina (2007 WOY winner); Attorney General of New Mexico Patricia Madrid; New York State Commissioner of Health Antonia Coello Novello; and Miriam Rivera, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel for Google.
