“I was honored to be selected as a Latina woman leader representing our community in such a fantastic conference,” Jackeline told Latinas in Business Inc. “In my speech, I addressed topics related to gender equality, finding you call as a leader, and learning to support each other as women,” she said.
Cacho found a way to relate to other women leader in the conference by expressing her desire to reach out to the next generations of leaders and help them become stronger by staying united.
“Some people believe the greatest challenge for women is to compete with men in the workplace but I found that this challenge is greater among women, as they are reluctant to support each other and are very competitive,” Cacho said.
The conference included four days of intensive presentations and a session dedicated to special children’s abilities.

The New America Alliance (NAA) meets again this October 27-29 at the 15th Wall Street Summit in New York City under the call “Building on American Latino Success to Forge a Stronger America.”

This year, the conference includes a special panel dedicated to the American Latinas Leadership Caucus with the participation of an exceptional Latina leaders’ lineup that includes Ana Maria Fernandez-Haar, NAA Institute Chair of the Board and Managing Partner at Victoriana LLC; Carmen Ortiz-Mc-Ghee, SVP and Resident Sales Director, Aon Risk Solutions; Solange Fernandez Brooks, CalSTRS Portfolio Manager; and Cynthia Rivera Weissblum, the Edwin Gould Foundation President and Chief Executive Officer.

Jackeline Cacho, the international award-winning journalist, producer and founder of the national TV Show “Jackeline Cacho presenta Triunfo Latino” on Vme TV is an incoming Board Director.

“I have interviewed Latinas from different ages and backgrounds, from different origins and levels of assimilation, and they all have Jackie Cacho in Perusomething in common: the passion for what they do and the hunger to succeed in life,” said Jackie. “You practically hear the same story from many of them: they come from humble origins –like myself- but they have inherited that power, that strength from their immigrant parents, the creativity, the persistence, the impulse, and the ability to reinvent themselves no matter the crisis they face,” she said.

Nobody can speak better to this journey than warm and vivacious Jackie Cacho herself. She was born in Peru and since an early age, she challenged her country’s status-quo by openly speaking about her indigenous roots. She became an advocate for native women who were usually relegated to menial jobs.

“When you see your parents suffer, their fight stays in your heart,” she said. Jackie believes many Latinas are born in hardship and they learn to become survivors within their own circumstances. “I always say that Latinas have this spiritual warrior inside that never consents to defeat.”

She recalls interviews with women such as Hilda Solis, former United States Secretary of Labor, with Maria Elena Durazo, Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, or recently with Leticia R. San Miguel-Van De Putte, senator for the 26th Texas District, the oldest of a Mexican-Texan family who lived in the country for six generations. “They work hard at supporting and defending the rights of immigrant workers and their families because they had the best teachings from their parents and grandparents,” Jackie said.

From the world of international pageantry in her country of origin to an outstanding career in media and communications in the USA, Jackie overcame her circumstances not only to shine in her own right but also to stage the accomplishments and successes of Latino leaders in the country. Her program, “Triunfo Latino,” has featured the stories of the most important Latino figures in the nation, from business to politics, and from celebrities to scientists.

JCacho_L06In 2006, with her husband Mexican director Thene Mucino they found Finding Productions, a media and marketing company based in Los Angeles, California, but Jackie needed something else. She also founded Edutainment Revolution, an initiative to motivate and inspire young Latino leaders across the nation, which recently launched a 10-city project with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation.

Twenty years of excellence in media as well as her restless humanitarian efforts around education made her the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions. In 2014 alone, Jackie was named “Mujer Destacada del Año” by the largest Spanish newspaper in the US La Opinion, and was selected among the 25 most influential Latino women in the nation by Latino Leaders Magazine.

“My goal is to leave a seed of change among women who are now growing into the next generation of leaders. We need to learn from each other, to embrace each other, to gain knowledge and experience from those who were pioneers and opened doors for the rest,” she said. “Our work is very valuable, and we must learn to negotiate that value to our advantage in order to create economic momentum for Latinas. Not only we need to earn that first million but we also need to know what comes next!” she concluded enthusiastically.
