As President and CEO of the HCCL and board member of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Mayra Pineda leverages her access to both high-level leaders and communities to create opportunities for growth on local and national levels. Leading a smaller non-profit means Mayra is deeply involved in every facet of HCCL, from funding and programming to overseeing the HCCL Foundation and Young Professionals. And while HCCL has experienced great growth in recent years, Mayra notes that the work is far from done. “Covid highlighted many disparities that we intentionally advocate for every day,” she says. “We are focused on building a diverse and inclusive business environment and community.”
