Ripples of Impact: Connecting Latina Entrepreneurs

“Creating Waves of Success, One Connection at a Time.”

Immerse yourself in an empowering evening where every connection initiates a ripple effect of influence. Commemorate the interwoven journey of Latina entrepreneurs in the Inland Empire, crafting success surges reverberating across the community. Delve into the potential of collaboration, mentorship, and the narratives of shared triumph, all of which contribute to a unified and profound impact.

Join us in raising our ‘LEILA-Tini’ to toast and celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of local Latina entrepreneurs and executives. This year’s event transcends being merely an evening of recognition—it serves as a platform to spotlight the significant contributions made by Latina business owners in the Inland Empire, casting a luminous focus on their impact.


This year’s nominees are remarkable mujeres embodying the spirit of ‘Triunfadoras’ who deserve recognition at the 2024 LEILA Awards. We are celebrating these outstanding Latina-owned businesses and Latina executives who exemplify innovative business strategies, resilience, and success and significantly contribute to the local business community in the Inland Empire.

Why Should I Attend?

  • Empowerment from multiple Fortune 1000 companies
  • Advertising and Influencer Marketing opportunities
  • An opportunity to break away from the corporate environment, celebrate Latina success, and have fun.
