Being bilingual is fundamental. For Latino women, being able to communicate in Spanish and English, is outstanding and have competitive advantages.
Lidia Soto-Harmon, CEO of the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital, said “Being bilingual is an incredible opportunity. I have two children and I’m concerned for both to speak Spanish as well as English, because that’s going to help them in their professional careers just like it helped me.”
The majority of the female Latino leaders participating in the National Hispana Leadership Institute, agrees with Lidia Soto-Harmon statement.
