This group of policy experts will evaluate the viability of reducing unemployment in marginalized communities by establishing “Entrepreneur Zones” within existing Opportunity Zones.

“As we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial that we redouble our efforts to achieve Governor Phil Murphy’s vision for a stronger and fairer New Jersey economy,” said NJEDA Chief Executive Officer Tim Sullivan. “Helping innovative companies launch and grow in New Jersey is a critical driver of sustainable, equitable economic growth. It is especially important to support the growth of companies in historically marginalized communities where job opportunities and access to capital are hard to come by. Entrepreneur Zones have the potential to achieve both of these goals, and the Working Group will provide valuable recommendations on how this policy could work in New Jersey.”

The Act requires the Working Group to consider whether the establishment of entrepreneur zones in which the State provides tax incentives, regulation relief, and financial support to local entrepreneurs is the most effective way to create jobs in the State. 

Susana G Baumann called to serve by NJEDA

On behalf of her experience working with Latina entrepreneurs and Latina-owned businesses, through which she has empowered them and shown the path for entrepreneurship, Susana was called to serve her fellow citizens. Susana will serve without compensation but will be considered a Special State Officer.

As an award-winning multicultural communications expert and strategist, public speaker, journalist, published author, and small business advocate, Susana has worked extensively with communities, organizations, and government agencies both locally and nationwide. 

Previously, Susana has been named “Journalist of the Year” by the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey for her service and advocacy to Latino small businesses; a “Latina of Influence” by Hispanic Lifestyle Magazine; and in 2018, received the Red Shoe Movement “Leaders Who Walk the Talk” Award in NYC, among other recognitions.

Susana G Baumann, President and CEO, Latinas in Business Inc. Susana@latinasinbusiness.us/

Susana G. Baumann, Latinas in Business Inc. President, CEO and Editor in Chief, was formerly the owner and Director of LCSWorldwide Language and Multicultural Marketing Communications, a consulting firm located in New Jersey, USA. Since 1996, LCSWorldwide consulted with organizations in healthcare, education, and public service to develop multicultural community outreach initiatives for the Latino market in nine states.

A multicultural marketing expert, business writer and published author, Baumann advocates for Latinos in the United States. She specialized in this market early on, when Hispanic was a “bad word” and companies would disregard the economic power of a burgeoning population.

Among her clients, she has serviced Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Texas and California State Libraries, major pharmaceutical and healthcare corporations, and national non-profit organizations in healthcare and education. A highlight of her career was to be part of the trainers’ cohort for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Spanish Outreach Program at WebJunction.com in 2007 and 2008.

Writer, editor, and publisher, she has worn almost every hat in the media industry and has managed publishing and production crews. In 2002, Susana launched the first bilingual newspaper in New Jersey, Periódico Latino!, featuring news and stories to promote the achievements of Latinos in the Garden State.

Travelling frequently to Latin America, she has interviewed Latin American and US Hispanic-American top corporate executives and government officers to develop success stories, trends, industry updates, and company profiles for trade magazines such as US Industry Today and Latin Trade.

Her book, ¡Hola, amigos! A Plan for Latino Outreachwas published in 2010 by Connecticut publisher ABC-CLIO Inc., and acclaimed by specialized reviews.

“Whether it’s used in whole or chapter by chapter as needed, the combination of information, ideas, worksheets, and rich access to bibliographic source material creates a potent tool for beginning and enriching outreach programming to the Latino community. This is indeed the centerpiece of the publisher’s Latinos and Libraries series.”

Baumann received the LISTA Summit and the Latina Excellence Award at 2015, TECLA Award for Best Business Blogat Hispanicize 2015, and was invited to become a media member of the NAA American Latina Leadership Caucus. In 2017, Susana was named a 2017 Latina of Influenceby Hispanic Lifestyle Magazine and in 2018, received the Red Shoe Movement “Leaders Who Walk the Walk” Award.

In 2013, she was named “Journalist of the Year” by the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey for her service and advocacy to Latino small businesses, where she has been a speaker several times. She has also been a speaker at Jacksonville University Media and Communications Series, the 2017 Prospanica National Conference, the LEAD Conference for Latina students at Harvard University and the P.O.W.E.R. Women’s Summit in Newark, NJ.

She has been featured in several national media outlets including Abasto Magazine, Huffington Post, Negocios Now, and has been a guest to TV and radio programs including the Joe Torres TV program Tiempo at ABC News and several times to Contigo en la Comunidad at Univision 41.

Welcome to Erika Del Valle Cruz, new addition to our Editorial Advisory Board

Erika Del Valle Cruz, new addition to the LatinasinBusiness.us Editorial Advisory Board

Our warmest welcome to Erika Del Valle Cruz, new addition to our Editorial Advisory Board. As an intercultural leader, Erika Del Valle Cruz is a Life Science Professional with experience in Pharmaceutical leadership positions.

She has a BS in Biochemistry and Post-graduate studies: Industrial Organizational Psychology and Master in Business Administration.

She lived in expatriation in three countries and is fluent in English, Spanish, and is proficient in Portuguese and Italian. Accordingly, Erika has professional experience as an intercultural trainer and public speaker working with people with multiples cultural background (European, Latin American, Caribbean’s and India. An expert in multicultural markets, Erika states that in the USA, “advertisement agencies must understand that African-Americans and Hispanic consumers are increasingly reconnecting to their respective roots, which holds implications for savvy marketers who want to maintain their brand message in front of these consumers.”

However, the ability to reach African-Americans and Hispanic consumers in a way that truly strikes a chord and connects with their deep-seated cultural values and beliefs is critical, she says. Brands must show that they understand the ethnic consumer by crafting culturally appropriate and targeted messaging that speaks directly to them. Believe it or not, their roots and heritage are more important to me today than they were just five years ago.

According to a study conducted by the firm Yankelovich, located in Chapel Hill, N.C., Erika states that,

  • While 80 percent of African-Americans feel ignored by the government, trust issues differ between U.S. – and foreign-born Hispanics at 15 percent and 36 percent, respectively.
  • The good news for marketers is that 58 percent of Hispanics and 55 percent of African-Americans said, “It is risky to buy a brand you are not familiar with.”
  • Only 42 percent of African-Americans and 40 percent of Hispanics said they would “buy private label and generic brands” if their families unexpectedly found themselves with less money.

“In conclusion, understanding the sources of influencers, the communication preferences and the media perceptions of the ethnic consumer is crucial to successful behavior change,” she says.

Working in healthcare in many capacities, she has developed multichannel integrated campaigns, promotions and communications for both emerging and established markets across multiple therapeutic areas, including infection diseases franchise (hepatitis, HIV and antibiotics, oncology and transplant among others. In particular she has enjoyed success in medical marketing, patient education and multicultural branding. Her commitment to Healthcare Marketing communications management has consistently yielded innovative programs developed on behalf of several brands of leading pharmaceutical companies like: Schering Plough, Roche, Pfizer, Bayer, Merck, Novartis, Astella and AstraZeneca.

Currently, she is continuing her education in Easter Medicine Supportive Therapies, with the direction of Dr Yang Yang, who works with patients from multiples healthcare institutions including the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancerin New York. Her goal is to become a Cancer Support Specialists to continue developing deceases awareness and educational programs.
