In a panel called "The Power to Empower" moderated by People en Español executive editor María Morales, actress Adamari López will speak with Mariangie Bras, the secretary of the board of directors of the CAP Foundation, which helps children with cancer in Puerto Rico, and Angie Benítez, who opened a subsidiary of the Susan G.

Journalist María Elena Salinas and Univision senior vice president of human resources Roxanna Flores will also appear on a career panel with Red Shoe Movement CEO Mariela Dabbah.
"People en Español invites Latina professionals to reflect on the evolution of empowerment in their community over the past 10 years," People en Español publisher Monique Manso said in a statement. "Through each conversation, industry leaders and pioneers will advise the public on how to achieve their goals. Our mission is to create an intimate space to talk about the power of empowerment, as well as the importance of reaching out to other women just starting their careers, and celebrating each other's accomplishments. Ideally, this results in mentors, partnerships, and true friendships, creating an empowering community."
