Marlene Sanchez Dooner

Dooner develops initiatives and new business opportunities in the Hispanic market across the company’s platforms. She also leads financial planning, strategic initiatives and business development for Telemundo and NBC Universo. For this seasoned exec, diversity means “reflecting the cultural values of our customers and audiences in our programming, as well as behind the scenes.” The industry supports diversity by building inclusive workforces and cultures, she says. Moving forward, “networks should continue to invest in content featuring a wide range of characters that reflect real life and resonate with our audiences.” She’s proud of the work Telemundo has done with its “El Poder En Ti” campaign, which empowers viewers to improve their lives through education, health, finance and civic engagement.
