MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The Latin Recording Academy® announced today its 2022 Leading Ladies of Entertainment honorees — an initiative created six years ago to honor and recognize professional and socially-conscious women within the arts and Latin entertainment fields who have made significant contributions and inspired the next generation of female leaders. After two years of virtual celebrations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event returns live, sponsored by City National Bank with a private presentation and luncheon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, November 15, as part of the marquee events for Latin GRAMMY® Week.
This year’s honorees are:
“We are proud to celebrate this amazing group of women and their many contributions to the Latin music and entertainment worlds,” said Manuel Abud, CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. “While there continues to be a sizeable gender gap in the industry, we continue to make inroads, with initiatives like the Leading Ladies of Entertainment platform, as we shine a light on the necessary work that needs to be done in order to create equity and gender parity.”
In addition, City National Bank and Noteable, By Spotify for Artists join the celebration once again as official bank and official music streaming services sponsors. Furthermore, Noteable will be making another special scholarship donation to the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation’s Scholarship Fund in support of future Latin music makers.
Paying-it-forward and forging opportunity for future generations is a core pillar of the program, and for the second consecutive year, the Leading Ladies of Entertainment is partnering with She Is The Music — a global nonprofit working to increase the number of women in music — on a collaborative mentorship program. Past Leading Ladies honorees will be invited to mentor a She Is The Music mentee. The partnership will build on last year’s Leading Ladies Connect TogetHER mentorship program.
Rebeca León, former Leading Ladies of Entertainment honoree and She Is The Music Board member, added: “I am proud to be part of the She is the Music mentorship program with Leading Ladies of Latin Music. The most important thing we can do is lift women up and put them in situations where they can learn and grow. It’s no longer about a seat at the table; it’s about giving women the tools to own the building that the tables are in.”
Applications for the Leading Ladies Connect TogetHER mentorship program are now open, through Friday, November 11, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. ET. The link to apply and guidelines are available at Leading Ladies Connect TogetHER. If you have additional questions, email us at [email protected].
