Gutiérrez, a professor at Loyola Marymount University’s College of Business Administration, is one of only 40 Latina Americans currently teaching at a U.S. business school. She focuses her research on issues facing women and underrepresented minorities, most recently identifying the factors that contribute to the underrepresentation of minorities on corporate boards in the U.S., as well as research examining the income gap endured by ethnic minorities in corporate America.

A 2006 Riordan Fellow, Gutiérrez now gives back as a volunteer for the Riordan Programs, as well as for the TELACU Foundation, which combines financial resources with highly effective programs that shatter barriers to academic success for first-generation college students. Among her many honors, Latina Magazine has named Gutiérrez a “Next Generation Latina,” recognizing her impact as a role model.
