On Nov. 22, 2019, the South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Hispanic Women’s Society Network celebrated its Women Empowering and Embracing Women Awards, where seven women were honored for successes in their respective careers and for serving as mentors to other women: Maria T. Planas, Lourdes Martinez, Dr. Aida Levitan, Mara Rey Suarez, Karla Hernandez-Mats, Rosa Cozad and Sandra Pubchara. During the event, the Man of the Year Award was presented to the family of the late Ralph Gonzalez-Jacobo, chairman of the organization who passed away in October. The lunch took place at Hotel Colonnade and featured guest speaker Dr. Cristina Pozo-Kaderman, director of clinical operations and cancer support services at the University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
