CONSULTING | PUBLIC SPEAKING | MENTORING | WORKSHOPS | PUBLICATIONS
The only way to know where we’re going is understanding where we are now. Through research and consulting, NENANI aims to grasp not only the current situation of women in business, but also support women on their path towards leadership. Bringing this information to light is crucial, so thanks to my personal breath of knowledge and experience being a woman and Latina leader in business, NENANI presents research, speaks and consults for both academic and corporate audiences.
Additionally, through NENANI Mentoring programs, I target young Latina high school and college students with the Future Latina Leaders program and other workshops focusing on leadership, personal branding and strategic networking.
NENANI MENTORING & WORKSHOPS
Having experienced first hand the uncertainty and challenges to find the way as an international student in college, NENANI offers mentoring and workshops on leadership, personal branding and networking to female international students from Latin American countries (and other countries) and US-born Latina students in high school and college level to help guide their path to business success.

STATE OF WOMEN IN THE MARITIME INDUSTRY
This study is meant to understand the state of women’s participation in leadership roles in the maritime industry and whether international groups such as WISTA, Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association, can help advance women’s careers in this industry through its networking and business opportunities. Through Hofstede’s six dimensions of culture framework and interviews to members, I analyze whether cross-cultural groups such as WISTA have any effect on the cultural conditions of the countries where they have established chapters. After identifying the main concerns from the research, I provide suggestions to improve the standing of WISTA within the maritime industry.
HARNESSING POTENTIAL – INSTITUTIONAL VOIDS AND DOING BUSINESS IN INDIA
This award-winning research (Best Master Paper, Academy of International Business-South East, 2015) explores India as the largest democracy in the world and why it has been an attractive and powerful market for foreign investors since its emergence into the world economy in the 1990s. India is considered an emerging market and has a vast presence of institutional voids, which present both challenges and opportunities for foreign companies interested in taking a share of the Indian market. This work aims to define the institutional voids in the product, labor and capital markets, as well as within the macro context and describe the unique challenges and opportunities present in India. To achieve this, Khanna and Palepu’s toolkits in Winning in Emerging Markets: A Road Map for Strategy and Execution are used to understand emerging markets and their consequent institutional voids.
