Nely Galán is a quintessential maker: She is a Latina media mogul, an entrepreneur, a first generation immigrant, a teacher, a speaker, an Emmy Award winning producer, and an advocate for gender equity. Above all, she is SELF MADE.
Dubbed the “Tropical Tycoon” by The New York Times Magazine, Galán is one of the entertainment industry’s most savvy influencers. Galan is a Cuban immigrant and worked her way up to become the first female president of a U.S. television network (Telemundo).
Throughout her career Galán produced over 700 episodes of television in English and Spanish. Galán also holds the distinction of being the first Latina ever to appear on “Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump” on NBC— showing on national television that a multi-cultural woman’s place is in the boardroom.
After becoming self-made on her own terms, Galán has made it her mission to teach women—regardless of age or background—how they too can become entrepreneurs. Her forthcoming book, SELF MADE: Becoming Empowered, Self-Reliant, and Rich in Every Way, will be published by Spiegel & Grau/Random House in 2016. Inspired by the new revolution in women’s entrepreneurship led by multicultural women, Galán wrote the book as a manifesto to ignite the SELF MADE movement, uniting all women on a quest for an economic future they control.
