Negocios Now will pay tribute to Latinos fighting Covid-19 with a special section on its 7th edition of Who’s Who in Hispanic Chicago to be published at the end of June.
The edition will collect profiles of doctors, community leaders, firefighters, and journalists who have been on the front lines against this pandemic.
“We are aware that they would not reach 100 editions to recognize all those who. in one way or another, have been involved in the fight against Covid-19, even putting their lives at risk,” said Clemente Nicado, publisher.” Negocios Now could not ignore this unique historical moment in these lives;”
The edition, which will have Wintrust as the main sponsor, is also sponsored by ComEd, BMO Harris Bank, Comcast, and Remy Martin. Other sponsors will be announced soon.
In addition to the section dedicated to Covid-19, Negocios Now will publish a list of people in Business, Construction, Corporate, Government, Healthcare, Latinos on Board and Non-Profit. In total, more than 200 leaders will be profiled in the edition.
We are excited to see many new faces in our issue, along with other Latino leaders who have been profiled in the past. Nothing makes us happier than recognizing people that well deserve it, “said Nicado.
Negoicos Now – Who’s Who in Hispanic Chicago was launched in 2014 to shine a light on the leadership of the Hispanic community in Chicago. One year later, Nicado Publishing launched “Latinos 40 Under 40 in Chicago, a very successful event that last year was also celebrated in New York.
When the 7th edition is published, Negocios Now will have recognized more than 1,000 Hispanics in New York and Chicago in the past seven years. Due to Covid-19, Negocios Now has been forced to postpone the traditional celebrations for both events.
