Herbalife Nutrition, the Los Angeles-based global nutrition, recently announced its support for the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the largest and oldest Hispanic organization in the U.S., at the 89th Annual LULAC National Convention currently being hold in Phoenix. The event, which runs through July 21, will cover key issues including health, sexual assault and the need for a greater Latina presence in business and politics.
“We’re thrilled to begin a new chapter in our relationship with LULAC, evolving from a partnership over the past five years from the local and state level to this year’s national LULAC and the Women’s Conference,” said Angela Arboleda, vice president of Government and Community Affairs at Herbalife Nutrition.
Over the five-day conference, Arboleda will participate in the Latinas Rising: Entrepreneurship & Business panel discussion, which will focus on Latina businesswomen who have had a major impact on their local economies.
“I am grateful for Herbalife Nutrition’s partnership and their support of the Women’s Commission at the LULAC National Women’s Conference in our mission to empower with knowledge and harness leadership skills for Latinas to succeed in today’s economy,” said National Vice President for Women Lourdes Galvan. “Throughout our partnership, the company has generously supported LULAC’s efforts to highlight the many ways that Latinas contribute every day to the growth and improvement of the Latino Community and the neighborhoods where they live and work.”
