â€œThis is an incredible opportunity to showcase our platform and invite Latinas to come join our community. Our stories are their stories, and our success is theirs as well,â€ said Susana G Baumann, LIBizus Founder and Editor-in-Chief. â€œWe believe in the power of community. The time is now for millions of Latinas at the helm of small businesses and the pipelines of corporations waiting for their turn to come. This is your turn, this is our moment.â€
The first annual Tecla Awards was held on Monday, March 16, 2015 at the JW Marriott rooftop in Downtown Miami during Hispanicize Week, the largest U.S. Hispanic marketing, media and entertainment industries event in the nation.
Founded by award-winning journalist, author, multicultural expert, public speaker, and small business advocate Susana G. Baumann in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month on September 2014, LatinasInBusiness.us is a community of communicators and business owners seeking to support, enrich and empower the experience of Latinas in business and the workplace.
â€œSince we launched just six short months ago, we have seen an overwhelming support from our LIBizus, the business and the social media communities, which speaks for the need of a digital space where Latinas find themselves featured and represented,â€ Baumann said. â€œWe also want to recognize the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey, President Carlos Medina and Board member Luis O De la Hoz, for their unconditional support.â€
