“Rosita Romero, I’m honored to receive this award and thank you for making our partnership worthwhile. I knocked on your door for 7 months and I can tell you are a busy leader” said Froy C. Perez, Sales Manager of Toshiba while receiving the DWDC Award for Corporate Development in NYC.
Froy met Rosita Romero 5 years ago during his short stay with his wife in the Washington Heights community. Rosita leads The Dominican Women’s Development Center, a not-for-profit organization created to contribute to the empowerment of Dominican / Latina, and other women including their families who reside in Washington Heights / Inwood and other New York City communities.
Rosita puts pieces together to increase the growth and development of our self esteem by affirming our identity and solidarity through multicultural and holistic social services, and educational, economic and cultural development programs.
