MillerCoors Launches Leadership Initiative with Líder of the Year

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - BusinessMillerCoors recognized Andrea Delgado, a national environmentalist who was recently named the MillerCoors Líder of the Year, during a reception. Delgado is a Senior Policy Analyst and Communications Manager for the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), a national non-profit that works to educate, empower and increase opportunities for Latino workers and their families. Delgado will use the $25,000 Líder of the Year award to implement a leadership initiative between MillerCoors and LCLAA.

“I’m grateful to MillerCoors for this great honor and for giving me the opportunity to continue to address the issues that affect our community,” said Delgado. “Being named Líder of the Year motivates me to continue doing my work and hopefully inspire others to take on leadership roles that benefit their communities.”

As the winner, Delgado received a $25,000 award grant from MillerCoors, which will help fund leadership training for Latina LCLAA members. The training intends to enhance the skills and qualities needed to empower these women to reach their goals in helping their communities. The women will also generate awareness of issues that affect their communities, specifically environmental protection, conservation and stewardship.

“Andrea’s dedication proves that one person can make a difference. We’re proud to recognize and partner with her and LCLAA to implement a project that will benefit the Latino community and the environment,” said Jose Ruano, Manager, Multicultural Relations, MillerCoors. “We hope the MillerCoors Líderes program will inspire Latino leaders throughout the country to continue uplifting their local communities.”
