Kany García, Rocío Guerrero, Rosa Laguerrigue and Janina Rosado will be recognized as socially conscious professional women in the Latin arts and entertainment sector
The Latin Recording Academy confirmed the new honorees of Leading Ladies of Entertainment 2022. The program was created six years ago to recognize socially conscious professional women in the Latin arts and entertainment sector, who made important contributions; in addition to being inspired to the next generation of leaders.
The protagonists will be the singer-songwriter Kany García, already the owner of six Latin GRAMMYs, the global director of Latin music for Amazon Music, Rocío Guerrero; the executive director of RLM, artist management firm Rosa Lagarrigue; and the pianist, arranger, musical director, co-producer of Juan Luis Guerra Janina Rosado, who already has nine Latin GRAMMYs in her possession.
Manuel Abud, CEO of The Latin Recording Academy said: “We are proud to celebrate this wonderful group of women and their outstanding contributions to the world of Latin music and entertainment. Although gender disparity is a reality in the industry, through initiatives such as the Leading Ladies of Entertainment platform, our organization continues to raise awareness about the effort that must be made to achieve gender equity and parity.”
Additionally, sponsors City National Bank and Noteable, By Spotify for Artists will once again join the celebration as the Official Bank and Official Music Streaming Service. In addition, Noteable will make another special donation to the Latin GRAMMY® Cultural Foundation Scholarship Fund to support future creators of Latin music.
Making contributions to give back and create opportunities for future generations is one of the main pillars of the program, and for the second consecutive year, Leading Ladies of Entertainment has partnered with She Is The Music, an international non-profit organization, to collaborate on a mentoring program to increase the number of women in music. Past Leading Ladies honorees will be invited to mentor She Is The Music trainees. The alliance will continue to build on last year’s Leading Ladies Connect TogetHER mentoring program.
Rebeca León, past Leading Ladies of Entertainment honoree and She Is The Music board member, added, “I am proud to be a part of the She Is The Music mentorship program with Leading Ladies of Latin Music. The most important thing we do is help women excel and put them in situations where they can learn and develop. It is no longer a matter of having a seat at the table but of giving them the tools to build the buildings where the tables are”.
The event, sponsored by City National Bank, returns to face-to-face after going through 2 years of pandemic, and arrives with a presentation and private lunch on Tuesday, November 15, in Las Vegas as part of the main events of the Latin American Week GRAMMY.
