She will also attend a workshop in Mexico City Nov. 5-10. Trujillo is one of 17 participants from the United States.
HOPE and Grupo Salinas, in partnership with the Woodrow Wilson Center and the Aspen Institute Mexico, are launching the second year of the HOPE program.
"This is a great opportunity for Latinas to strategize and create an impact at both a local and national level," Trujillo said. "It is a great honor to have been nominated."
Dharma E. Cortes, PhD, a Harvard Medical School instructor and a Lynn resident, nominated Trujillo. Cortes is also part of the Fellowship Advisory Group.
The HOPE fellowship seeks to propel Latina executives from state leadership to national and international public service. Participants will be promoted as model leaders of their communities, exposed to issues critical to building their binational leadership competencies, and will be coached to ensure their success in reaching their public service aspirations.
