For my series on strong female founders, I had the pleasure of interviewing Nancy Maldonado who joined the Chicano Federation of San Diego County as a Senior Program Director in 2017. Her knowledge of community-based research and her experience in leading the strategic development of community-based programs and interventions propelled her to the position of Chief Operating Officer in 2018. Nancy worked to improve the quality of the Chicano Federation’s programs and services, and helped build a strong foundation for long-term growth and innovation. In January 2019, Nancy was named Chief Executive Officer of Chicano Federation.
In mid-May, the Chicano Federation of San Diego County (CF) welcomed 485 guests to the US Grant Hotel for a spirited Anniversary Ball celebrating the organization’s 50 years of service to the Latino community. The American civil rights movement of the 1960’s inspired CF’s creation, and it was officially incorporated as a nonprofit community-based organization in 1969. Through the ensuing decades, CF challenged hiring practices and biased portrayals of Latinos in the media, conducted voter registration drives, and worked to further the interests of San Diego’s Latino community.
