There are few better seats at the table than the one next to the president of the United States.   As vice president, Kamala Harris recognizes that privilege. And like the influential Latinos and Latinas featured on The New Majority, she recognizes it as a result of those underrepresented leaders who came before her. Those who walked into spaces of corporate and political power knowing they would be judged and undervalued—but did so with their chins up and shoulders back.   Her story has long been one of resolve. Magnified not only by her ascent to become the firs ..read more

The New Majority
by Hispanic Executive

As a leading mind in climate science, Dr. Román has made it his mission to illustrate the effects of climate change through meaningful stories rather than onslaughts of data. And he often uses his native Puerto Rico as his protagonist. The island’s susceptibility to hurricanes and its reputation as a “front line community in the face of climate,” means that it’s consistently been forced to help itself structurally while propping ..read more

Growing up in New Mexico, Acevedo discovered her track to engineering early on thanks to an aptitude for science and math. It was during that nontraditional path—one in which she was forced to battle otherness as a young Latina engineer—where she di ..read more

The New Majority
by Hispanic Executive

For Dr. Geraldo Cadava, the wide diversity of the Latino experience is something to be honored rather than categorically dissected. Only once we respect the countless origin stories of our community can we even begin to understand the sincere, deeply held beliefs of each unique individual.
