“I expect this Fireside to bring some light on a difficult topic in the Fashion and Luxury industries, which is the lack of real inclusion of minority women not only as protagonists but also as a huge and upcoming market. With some exceptions, women of color are still largely invisible in mainstream media,” said Susana G Baumann, President and CEO, Latinas in Business Inc.

Daneida Polanco is currently the New York correspondent for “Primer Impacto”, Univision Network, one of the most popular TV shows for the Hispanic Market worldwide. Born in San Francisco de Macorís, Dominican Republic. This dashing Latina arrived in the United States when she was 18 years old and soon began studying Mass Media Arts at the Bronx Community College in New York. She continued to work her way up to become one of the most thought-after Spanish television correspondents. 

Baumann continued…“Latinas and other women entrepreneurs are a striking force in the US economy; and a powerful market that spends 9 times in beauty and hair products than their white counterparts. They cannot be left behind. We are grateful to leaders like Jose Forteza and Daneida Polanco who are supporting our mission to keep women entrepreneurs not only surviving but also thriving during the difficult pandemic economic transition,” said Susana G Baumann, President and CEO, Latinas in Business Inc.
