Speak Hispanic, a woman’s owned and operated social enterprise, today announced that its Principal, Elianne Ramos, has been named a recipient of the Social Media Innovator Award, granted by the Maryland Governor’s Commission on Hispanic Affairs. The award was presented to Ms. Ramos on October 15, 2014, during the annual Hispanic Heritage Month reception at the Governor’s home in Annapolis.
In her letter to Ms. Ramos, Commission Chair Yolanda María Martínez said, “Our community’s achievements have been made possible because of this administration’s commitment to diversity and the belief in the dignity and respect of every individual. However, we also acknowledge that we could not have done this without the individuals like you who are committed to working on behalf of the Hispanic community to make this State a great place.”
“Social tools have allowed the democratization of information and participation in civic life for so many segments of the population, and being able to use them to help empower our Latino community is a reward in itself,” said Elianne Ramos. “It is an extraordinary honor to be recognized for work that is so deeply fulfilling to me in so many levels, especially when said recognition comes from a distinguished group of people whom I admire and respect so much. I humbly and gratefully accept this award as a sign that I am on the right path.”
