Guest Biography

Prospanica – The Association of Hispanic Professionals – is here to help you grow personally and professionally through:

  • Valuable employment opportunities for MBA students
  • Undergraduate assistance to pursue graduate education
  • Expanded business networks and guidance to advance your professional career

We have 46 professional and university chapters to support you, and we’ve created strong partnerships with prominent universities and Fortune 500 companies. Whether you’re looking for exciting job connections or a roadmap to graduate education, Prospanica will help you chart the path ahead.

Formerly the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) and founded in 1988, Prospanica’s nearly 30-year history emphasizes on educational and professional development programs to improve the Hispanic community as a whole.

Strategic Plan and Mission

Hispanics will contribute in the affluence of the U.S. in proportion to their share of the population, as they attain higher education and leadership positions in record numbers. The entire country will become even stronger as a result of greater participation from the Hispanic community. 

Prospanica's mission is to empower Hispanic business professionals to achieve their full educational, economic, and social potential. The organization works to fulfill this mission to our members through three strategies:

  1. Provide access to higher education for Hispanics seeking professional advancement in business 
  2. Offer resources, information and a sense of community to business students and professionals to increase their development and advancement opportunities
  3. Propagate a culture of participation and leadership to advocate for the growth of Hispanic professionals in corporate America


The Prospanica vision is to be the leading catalyst for Hispanic professional achievement through diversity of thought, expert collaboration, and community engagement to create and develop Hispanic leaders.

Show Host
The People Speak host

The People Speak has evolved over the years with many great guests who have been interviewed by some very fine hosts.

We are a 55 minute show airing every other Sunday between 5-6pm Pacific/8-9pm Eastern. The show features a guest interview from any number of realms of interest (entertainment, science, philosophy, healing, spirituality, activism, politics, literature, etc.).

The guests share their stories, lives, strategies, books, philosophy, films, music, or whatever it is they use as a vehicle for making a difference for the better.

The radio show name, The People Speak, is based on the idea of allowing our audience - the People - a chance to interact with the guests during the hour, and we take phone or text questions from them during the interview.

Past guests include such notables as Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the late Howard Zinn, Nobel Laureates Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi, Kathryn Najimy, Oliver Stone, Jesse Ventura, Richard Belzer, Cynthia McKinney, Cindy Sheehan, Scott Horton, Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, George Galloway, Roseanne Barr, Ed Asner, Chevy Chase, as well as various reps from Amnesty International, UN World Food Programme, and many others.
