Cofounder, Hispanics in Wine, New York City; Owner, Maria Calvert PR Consulting, Washington, D.C.
Proving Representation Matters
Originally from Ecuador, Calvert cofounded Hispanics in Wine, a social platform dedicated to amplifying Hispanic and Latinx contributions to beverage and hospitality businesses, in September 2020. With “representation matters” as its guiding principle, its weekly spotlight series profiles Spanish-speaking industry members and serves as a community hub.
Calvert works on content curation and digital strategy for the platform, in addition to using public relations expertise to work with local and national press to bring Hispanic and Latinx wine and hospitality professionals to the forefront. As a freelance public relations consultant, Calvert works closely with start-ups and established brands from the U.S. and worldwide in several sectors, including food, wine and spirits.
