Women of ALPFA (WOA) is dedicated to the professional success of Latina women. We empower and encourage professional Latinas to reach their full potential and become trailblazers in their industry. We offer targeted programs, training through a professional development curriculum, and exposure to senior leaders via networking and mentoring opportunities. WOA aims to provide professional Latinas with the tools and road maps to strengthen their leadership and management skills, fostering both their professional and personal development.
Women have made great strides in the workplace, but inequality persists. Latina women continue to be underrepresented in high-position jobs in Fortune 500 companies. Recent research has revealed that Latinas are growing in number in the business world, growing in educational achievement, and also are becoming a group whose buying power is on the rise, making them both powerful consumers and rich resources for the business industry. However, Latinas and other multi-racial business people still face certain challenges including stereotypes, which might prevent them from getting promotions and leading positions, thus, failing to climb the corporate ladder.
The 2015 WOA framework will focus on developing Latina leaders in pursuit of a global mindset by assisting them in developing the skills needed to be effective collaborators across different cultures when working towards a common goal that yields strong results.
