LEILA ™ AWARDS CEREMONY As the Inland Empire business community turns a new leaf in 2023, Latina-Owned businesses appear as resolute and valuable as a gold-spreading radiance that lights the path for future women entrepreneurs. The inspiration for this year’s LEILA Awards is taken from what is the most valuable and reliable; a ‘Gold Standard.’ Latina-owned businesses in the Inland Empire exemplify the qualities of pure gold recognized for their remarkable adaptability, strength, and relentless spirit and are formed through a transformation that requires ingenuity, grit, and a winning mindset. During the event, we’ll examine the findings of the most recent NLBWA-IE research study in partnership with UCR. This analysis focuses on the digital divide’s disproportionate impact on Latina-owned businesses, particularly the lack of access to media literacy in the Inland Empire region. The Latinas nominated are entrepreneurs that have demonstrated leadership and service to their community. We are thrilled to recognize these brilliant women in 3 categories: LATINA EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR AWARD, LATINA OWNED EMERGING BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD, and LATINA OWNED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD.
