Galan has a vision for Latina women, a future where we consciously take advantage of our current, well-documented power—purchasing and voting power—and access the real economic opportunities that, with the help of Galan and The Adelante Movement, are now becoming accessible, viable low-hanging fruit. “When I was on Coca-Cola’s advisory board, I learned that the information about Latinas coming from the government, medical establishments and media was typically negative—versus Coca-Cola’s research, which reports that Latinas are today the emerging market as far as voting and spending are concerned,” says Galan. With this knowledge in hand, her expertise raring to go, and her passion for empowerment as her fuel, Galan created the movement—her way of giving back to the community that, in her view, instilled the real values for her success.
