Nely Galan is a Latina media mogul, author, teacher, entrepreneur, speaker, Emmy Award-winning producer, and savvy influencer. She is a quintessential maker and an advocate for gender parity. As a Cuban immigrant, Nely worked her way to the top as president of Telemundo’s entertainment division, producing over 700 episodes for TV in English and Spanish. Another claim to fame is that Nely was the first ever Latina to appear on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice show with Donald Trump. Nely’s book, Self Made, is a NY Times bestseller about becoming empowered, self-reliant, and rich in every way. She also founded a nonprofit, The Adelante Movement, which trains other Latina women for entrepreneurship.
