Despite all the advancements women have made for themselves in the past century, women continue to be major victims of gender discrimination in corporate America. Women are still paid less than men, even when they have the same working skills, educational background, and perform the same tasks as their male counterparts.
Additionally, Latinos and Hispanics are the most underrepresented minority group in the national workforce, despite the fact that they are the second largest racial-ethnic group in the United States. 
For all these reasons, Latino and Hispanic women are at a major disadvantage when it comes to getting a job in corporate America, for they will be the victims of both gender and racial discrimination.
A good way through wich we can prevent this from happening is to empower these women to prepare themselves for their job interviews in order to maximize their performance. The L.E.A.D. (Latina Empowerment, Achievement, and Development) Program was established as a response to the need for a service that would increase the potential of women of Latin American background in the Davidson, Lake Norman, Huntersville, Cornelius and Mooresville area, to achieve economic self-sufficiency.
