Lena Hernandez

She began her career 20 years ago at the Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League (SMYAL) where she created leadership development opportunities and afterschool programs to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth in the Washington, DC metropolitan region.

 

At the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC), an organization that empowers a diverse population of youth and helps them transition to adulthood through multi-cultural programs, Lena Led efforts to implement and manage training programs that exposed high school Latinx students to careers in health care and at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), a national leadership development organization for students and young emerging Latinx leaders, she managed the office of the president serving as the liaison to the board of directors, corporate supporters and external partners.

In 2006, Lena joined the powerhouse Latina Duo, Ingrid Duran and Catherine Pino, founders of D&P Creative Strategies. There, she has spent the last 13 years “guiding the giving” and managing third party efforts by helping clients build strategic and long-lasting partnerships with both local and national organizations in multi-cultural communities.

As a senior executive with the firm, Lena also manages and coaches staff and serves as the director of special projects.

Lena was recently appointed to serve on the first-ever Latinx Advisory Council for Prince George’s County in Maryland and she has served as a board member of Latinas Leading Tomorrow (LLT) and as a youth board member of the National Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Organization (NGLBTO) and the Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League (SMYAL).
