SHARING our cultural heritage TO PROMOTE ECONOMIC GROWTH AND SOCIAL Innovation

Ver√≥nicaV.  Herrera, M.Ed.

Mrs. Herrera is a community-minded educator conducting research about culture as an asset in economic development and social innovation, what she calls 

#CulturePhilanthropy.


She was recognized as the Hispanicized Positive Impact Awards Person of The Year in 2016 for her local efforts to mentor and empower others through professional development. Her interactions with Hispanicize thought out 2016, have led to a new set of goals for the future of Latinos in the United States as a unified voice.  


Her current project is a journey throughout the nation where focus groups work together using Design Thinking as a tool, to come up with feasible solutions for the unification of the Latino voice in the USA.  Using the hashtag #SomosLaVozNacional, she invites local leaders to join this challenging journey.
