NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — 3-time EMMY award winning entrepreneur, author and top Latina speaker Gaby Natale will join a group of decision makers for the fifth Hispanic Leadership Summit held at the UN Headquarters in New York to address the issues around Hispanic perceptions and narratives.
“Leading the conversations around accurate narratives is incredibly personal to me. Creating non stereotypical content -from books to keynotes to shows- was one of the main reasons why I became an entrepreneur fifteen years ago and why I am so intentional in my work as speaker, journalist, and author. It is time to PIONEER, break barriers and aim to be what we cannot yet see in so many industries,” explains Natale.
The Hispanic Leadership Summit is an annual gathering of leaders from business, media, politics, and advocacy hosted by the We Are All Human foundation and headed by Claudia Romo Edelman. The event provides the annual update on the status of the Hispanic community within the model and framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
“The Latino community is the largest minority in the US, yet we remain chronically underrepresented and misrepresented in boardrooms, media narratives and public office. That is why the full backing of an institution as consequential as the United Nations is paramount in acknowledging this reality,” explains Natale.
This marks Natale’s fourth time speaking at this remarkable event where Latino leaders from all industries come together to address the most crucial challenges and opportunities our community faces. Natale -who is part of the event’s strategic committee- has been previously Invited to serve as special rapporteur on the topic of representation of Latinos in media.
The 2022 edition of the Hispanic Leadership Summit will take place on December 7 & 8 at the United Nations headquarters in New York City.
