We are so proud to announce that Latina founder Christy Haubegger has been tapped by President Obama for the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. 28 distinguished citizens “representing a broad range of backgrounds, interests, and professions are responsible for recommending a group of exceptional men and women to the President for selection as White House Fellows,” according to the official White House announcement.
"The men and women of this commission embody what makes the White House Fellows program so special," said President Obama. "These leaders are diverse, non-partisan, and committed to mentoring our next generation of public servants. I'm confident that they will select a class of White House Fellows that demonstrate extraordinary leadership, strong character, and a deep commitment to serving their country."
Haubegger founded Latina in 1996 to empower Latina women, and still remains a member of the board. She currently works as an executive at Creative Artists Agency and served as an executive producer of the film Spanglish. She also serves on the Board for Management Leadership for Tomorrow, which is dedicated to increasing the number of minority MBA candidates at the nation’s top business schools. Please join us in congratulating Haubegger on such a magnificent honor.
