www women hispanic html


Under Dominguez's leadership, the EEOC began to work more closely with local and state agencies. In addition, in April of 2002, she was the first chair to address the Canadian Parliament. "The United States and Canada share many issues of mutual concern with respect to the advancement of racial and ethnic minority group members, women, and people with disabilities in our workforces," Dominguez said in an EEOC press release.

Dominguez has been the recipient of much recognition, notably inclusion on two lists from Hispanic Business: The 100 Most Influential Hispanics and 80 Elite Hispanic Women. She also appeared on the 2000 Most Notable American Women list from the American Biographical Institute. She has served on several boards for non-profit groups, including the Human Resources Planning Society, the Leadership Foundation of the International Women's Forum, the Hispanic Business Roundtable, and Holy Names College. Dominguez and her husband, Alberto, have made their home in Maryland with their two sons.
