EMG’s Trujillo has HOPE

LYNN — Carolina Trujillo, The Essex Media Group's community relations director and coordinator of the "La Voz" publication, has been selected to participate in the HOPE (Hispanas Organized for Political Equality) Binational Public Service Fellowship. 

Trujillo will be in Washington through Thursday for the fellowship seminar, a nonpartisan executive leadership program for outstanding Latina professionals who, through increased competence in national and global security issues, can make urgent and long-lasting improvements in the lives of Latinas in the U.S. and Mexico.

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.
