The Growth of Latino-Owned Businesses In recent years, Latino-owned businesses have experienced remarkable growth, outpacing the average business significantly. A study by Stanford University reveals that Latino-owned businesses have achieved a staggering 34% growth rate, in stark contrast to the mere 1% growth observed across all businesses. Latinos in the United States have injected a remarkable $2.3 trillion into our economy, making it equivalent to the fifth-largest global economy. Despite comprising 19% of the U.S. population, Latinos still face underrepresentation and stereotyping in various sectors, including media, where only 7% of workers are Latino, and a mere 3% are Latina.
This discrepancy extends to the fields of film, television, and news, as well as book authors, editors, and publishers. A recent report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office underscores that from 2010 to 2019, the percentage of media workers who are Latino or Latina grew by only 1%, compared to a 3% rise for Latinos in other fields.
The “Breaking the Glass Ceiling” book seeks to address this disparity, change the narrative, empower Latina women to achieve upward mobility and foster wealth creation by sharing the inspirational stories of accomplished Latinas who can serve as role models in leadership and representation.
