“The New York City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce our 2018 Women in Business Awards Luncheon,” says Nick Lugo, President of NYCHCC. “The Women in Business Luncheon was created to salute and honor the commitment of exceptional Hispanic women.
It also serves as the Chamber’s first fundraiser of the year. All honorees have proven themselves in their respective fields, and have worked diligently and with integrity to climb the corporate ladder. Each honoree has demonstrated social responsibility by giving back to their communities.”
“At the NYCHCC, it gives us great pleasure to recognize the commitment of these exceptional Hispanic women that we are honoring today,” says Sulma Arzu-Brown, Director of Events at NYCHCC. “Their stories of sacrifice, achievement and triumph are inspiring.
The Chamber hopes that our 12th Annual Women in Business Luncheon inspires more support and membership so that we can continue to uphold the standards of our mission and our vision to build a healthy, culturally diverse and economically strong Hispanic business organization in New York City.”
“The Women in Business Luncheon is one of the Chamber’s many events of the year that present opportunities for sponsorship and mutually beneficial partnerships, said Nick Lugo, President of NYCHCC. “Many of our activities throughout the year provide free seminars and networking opportunities that support the Chamber’s membership.”
