UNIVISIONARIOS is a Univision Noticias initiative that celebrates Hispanic community leaders in the United States and how their contributions advance our community and the nation. An esteemed advisory board selected nine finalists, with our audience choosing one finalist in the MiUnivisionario category – voting ended on August 27 – that will ultimately be awarded $10,000 to the foundation of their choice as they continue to strive for a stronger community.

UNIVISIONARIOS goes beyond announcing an annual list of the most influential Hispanics – it is a conversation about their contributions to strengthening their communities. This initiative will recognize and celebrate scientists, entrepreneurs, educators, artists, and advocates, as each plays a vital role in the prominent and growing Hispanic cultural landscape.

In addition to the MiUnivisionario finalist selected by our audience, the nine remaining finalists will be chosen by an independent committee; the ten finalists will attend the UNIVISIONARIOS gala on September 22 in Washington, D.C. The aforementioned committee includes GLORIA and EMILIO ESTEFAN, GRAMMY award-winning artists; DOLORES HUERTA, community leader; JOSE ANTONIO TIJERINO, President and CEO of Hispanic Heritage Foundation; DR. JULIO FRENK, President of University of Miami; DR. PEDRO GREER, Professor, and Dean at Roseman University; MARK HUGO LOPEZ, Director of Research on Race and Ethnicity at the Pew Research Center; SYLVIA ACEVEDO, technology leader; ALBERTO MENDOZA, Director of the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford University; CLAUDIA ROMO, founder of the “We Are All Human Foundation.”
