“It is estimated that two-thirds of Latino-owned businesses will close their doors for good because of the crisis,” said Susana G Baumann, President and CEO, Latinas in Business Inc. “We want to make sure that we have a deep understanding of Latina and other minority women small business situation around the country, that our voices are heard, and that we bring solutions and perspective to the national conversation,” she added.
Stacie de Armas, Senior Vice President of Inclusive Insights & Initiatives and a leader within Nielsen’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion practice, has been confirmed as Keynote speaker for the event. Through her knowledge and expertise in research and consumer behavior, she produces inclusive thought leadership and new research initiatives on diverse consumers and audiences. She is currently an active member of the Cultural Marketing Council Board of Directors, Google’s 21st Century Multicultural Marketing Council, and has received industry honors for her work in diversity marketing.
Baumann states, “The new Administration Biden-Harris made a number of promises to be completed in their first 100 days. Among them were large-scale economic initiatives and the targeting of racial disparities. As we are a third way through, it is imperative that we discuss how these initiatives are being implemented and how there can be improvements. Clearly, we are in a crisis within a crisis. Our businesses are suffering, and therefore our families along with it. Sure, many of us have succumbed to the negative effects of the pandemic, but there is one thing I know for sure: as Latinas, if we fall, we rise back up!”
She continues, “We have heard the cries of help within our communities and we want them to know that we are here to help. It is our duty as leaders to extend a helping hand, not only sharing recovery trends and resources but also the support the community needs to come out of this successfully. Please join us in this National Conversation where everybody is welcome to the table.”
