Founder and Creative Director Hilary Lentini, of Lentini Design & Marketing, proudly supports women-owned businesses and small businesses. She’s deeply invested in creating employment and skill development opportunities for the next generation. From her tenure as President of the National Association of Women Business Owners Los Angeles Chapter (NAWBO-LA), Hilary realized that advocacy was another passion for her, and that she wanted to continue her volunteer leadership efforts. She set her sights on influencing public policy at the state level and applied for state commission work.

In May of 2018 she was honored with an appointment by Governor Brown to serve on the California Workforce Development Board. Hilary shares, “Statistically speaking, small businesses are the entities creating jobs and growing the workforce. I look forward to supporting the Board’s efforts in forging access for the under-employed to careers and entrance into the global economy, helping those individuals who possess the capacity but who’ve lacked the opportunity. With my business background in the education sector, non-profit sector, and public sector clients’ workforce development and career training programs, I feel well-suited to contribute to the Board’s important work.”
