“We know that it’s not the Chamber alone that can do it.”
This week’s #WeeklyChangemaker is Maria S. Salinas, the president & CEO of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, the largest business association in Los Angeles County representing more than 1,600 member companies and serving the interests of more than 235,000 businesses.
In 2018, Maria became the first woman and Latina to lead the L.A. Area Chamber in its 130-year history.
Under her leadership, the Chamber has focused on key strategic initiatives including expanding its advocacy for a business-friendly environment, promoting the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship throughout the region, and expanding global influence.
Watch clips from our #WorkingNationOverheard interview with Maria at the Milken Global Conference this year about preparing and matching local talent to jobs.
