DUBUQUE, Iowa – The Loras College Women’s Leadership Alliance (LWLA) and the Loras chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) will host alumna, Diana (Pena Clavijo) Miller (’09) as part of “Mujeres Unidas: United Women” at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, September 23 on the third floor of the Miller Academic Resource Center.
Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Miller will share her journey to Dubuque, Iowa, and her experiences as a Latina student on the Loras College campus. She will also be joined by current Loras students and LULAC members who will also be sharing their stories.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with LULAC and bringing Diana back to campus,” Cayla Schneider, director of development, said. “The LWLA hosts events where people can come together, show support and hopefully learn a little something, too.”
Miller graduated from Loras College with majors in finance and international studies and a minor in politics before earning her master’s in business administration from Clarke University in 2013. Miller is currently a senior marketing manager at Kunkel & Associates. She and her husband, Andy, live in Bellevue with their two daughters, Daniela and Lucia.
The Loras Women’s Leadership Alliance launched in 2017 with its mission to create educational opportunities and sessions for dialogue as they pertain to leadership growth. One of the group’s goals is to engage women on the Loras College campus and in alumni communities, connecting or reconnecting them with the College. It was awarded its third recipient this fall. The Women’s Leadership Alliance is guided by a volunteer board of alumni, faculty and staff.
The Loras LULAC chapter received its charter in 2019. Its mission is to advance the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, housing, health and civil rights of Hispanic Americans.
A short social gathering will precede the presentation and discussion.
