Holvino to speak at AAUW meeting
For the past 20 years, Holvino and her husband, James Cumming, have run the Brattleboro-based consulting, training and research organization dedicated to helping organizational change and advancing equity in groups and organizations. Most of their work takes place outside Brattleboro.
Holvino's talk will address America's changing population diversity. Hispanics are the fastest growing segment of the population and are now the nation's largest minority group.
Born in Puerto Rico, Holvino studied education at the University of Puerto Rico and received her doctorate in education from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. In 2002 she was honored at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce national convention for her work in advancing Latina women in business. She is a founding member of Madrinas: A Latina Leaders Network. She is also on the board of directors of ALANA Community Organization, based in Brattleboro.
Also at the meeting, which begins with a social hour at 6 p.m., this year's Educational Foundation honoree will be named, and branch members will elect officers for the coming year, according to Branch President Martha J. Fenn.
