To address the disparity of representation of Latinas in leadership positions, NHLI, a national 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington, D.C., was created in 1987 in response to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Glass Ceiling Initiative. This seminal study found that while minorities and women were making substantial gains in entering the workforce, they were not equally represented at the mid- and senior-levels of management in government or corporate sectors. The report found that Latinas were also significantly underrepresented on corporate boards and in the nonprofit and political arenas.
The NHLI is the only national leadership development program in the United States focused on future Latina leaders. The Institute’s goals include:

What started as a college assignment (to develop a brand awareness campaign for a hypothetical company) quickly morphed into a passion, then an obsession, then a livelihood. Not content to simply create the campaign on paper and pixels, Alcides Aguasvivas and Jose Martinez made their plan a reality and launched a full-service graphics and printing house—Pix-L Graphx.
Aided by a handful of talented design school recruits, and their indispensable head of security, Mason, Pix-L Graphx quickly made a name for itself with fresh, hip graphic design and affordable full-color printing to entertainment companies, restaurants, health and fitness firms, and other established and startup ventures. Early payments included a lifetime gym membership and a few spectacular meals.
Pix-L Graphx soon outgrew its Hudson County design studio and established a full-service graphics and print shop in Rutherford, New Jersey. There they tailor cutting edge creative and printing solutions for companies of all sizes, from Fortune to midsize to sole proprietors.
