UNO Translations and Communications founder and CEO Brigitta Toruño will be honored as a 2023 National Latino Leader during the 8th Annual National Latino Leadership Conference on Sept. 19.

Toruño, the daughter of an Ecuadorian mother and an Argentine father, is among 25 honorees nationwide and is the only honoree in the Washington, DC region. The award comes as Toruño celebrates UNO’s 25th anniversary on Nov. 1.

“My love of my native language, Spanish, fueled my desire to work with languages and launch UNO Translations and Communications, LLC, in 1998,” she sadi. “I built UNO from the ground up, establishing UNO to be a linguistic partner for brands wishing to reach Latinos and other markets. My company has been built, and has grown over the last 25 years, based on my belief that language services are a humanitarian endeavor, and the belief that we are one humanity—meant to serve each other.”

The awards are presented by The Council for Latino Workplace Equity, an initiative of the National Diversity Council. The awards recognize people who are demonstrating leadership excellence and high visibility in the Latino community, contributing to creating and promoting a culture where Latino talent is supported and leveraged for success, according to the announcement.
