President and CEO, Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,

Style is a state of mind, as Jennifer Rodriguez knows all too well. We sit down with the sartorial star from years past to talk work, wardrobes and world affairs.

For me, 2020 has brought...

renewed commitment to my personal mission of supporting the fulfillment of the Hispanic Promise. I am fully dedicated to developing social capital and wealth that will maximize the contributions and influence of the Latino community in our region.

In 2020, style is all about...

transitioning to a look that is appropriate for the work-at-home lifestyle. I do TV interviews several times a week and don’t want to look like I am going to a yoga class, so I need a style that is both polished and comfortable. I am at work, after all!

Since I was featured, my style has changed by...

I finally have bangs!

I am supporting my local community by...

spending my dollars locally with Latinx businesses. GPHCC’s campaign, Dine Latino Takeout Weekend, is all about supporting restaurants which have been deeply impacted by the pandemic.

My hope for the future is...

that we will finally invest in solving the root causes of inequities and disparities experienced by people of color. The ‘to-do list’ is long and will require massive resources commensurate with the years of failed policies and neglect our communities have suffered.
