Respected and Acknowledged...Zoe Saldana

To be seen and respected for my work and acknowledged as a true American Latina...means a lot to me.

--Zoe Saldana, Actress and Dancer (Star Trek, Avatar)

On Tuesdays, womenatliberty.com presents Leadership Tuesdays, a platform for a variety of voices and resources to develop, encourage, and strengthen women leaders. To day in honor of Hispanic Heritage month, we are acknowledging Fortune Magazine's "50 Most Powerful Latinas of 2017". These women were selected by the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) and they include senior Executives from Fortune 500 companies and some very impressive entrepreneurs. Topping the list is PG&E CEO and President Geisha Williams who made history as the first Hispanic woman to lead a Fortune 500 company. Also on this prestigious and influential list are: Grace Puma, Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Officer at PepsiCo; Yasmine Winkler, Regional CEO of UnitedHealth, a healthcare company providing health care services and products, including Medicaid services, to more than 100 million customers; and recently retired Gloria Santona, a former Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of McDonald's.

Role models are so important in helping women to dream beyond their current circumstances and achieve what has never been done before. As a community, we acknowledge the hard work and accomplishments of these extraordinary women and thank them for being an inspiration to not just Hispanic women, but to all of us.
