La Liga de Las Americas



A native of Genoa, Ohio, Diane N. De Hoyos graduated from Bowling Green State University in 1981 with a major in Comprehensive Science (Chemistry).  She earned a second degree in Spanish and is the recipient of the university’s distinguished Hispanic Alumnus Award.  She earned a master’s in Manufacturing Engineering from the University of Texas at El Paso. Her thesis entitled, “A study of the Factor Influencing Productivity in a U.S. and Maquila Manufacturing Operations” has been presented internationally.


De Hoyos has received numerous awards for her community outreach efforts.  Her contributions to the Latino engineering community have been featured in several publications nationwide.  Throughout her career, her passion for her culture and family has provided a solid foundation from which her tenacious and daring spirit can sour to break barriers and open doors for others.


It has been said that Diane N. De Hoyos is gifted with the creativity to dream and the will to realize her dreams.  A visionary who won’t compromise quality for expediency, she strives for the best and always makes a difference.


In 1996, she founded the SHPE sponsored Women in Action conference to celebrate the accomplishments of Hispanic professional women everywhere.  The award winning conference offered college Latinas a change to meet and interact with professional women who can offer valuable career advice.


De Hoyos’s extensive professional in México and the United States has made her an invaluable resource at General Motors to develop the kind of strategies that will attract and retain quality Latino talent.  When implemented, these strategies promise to create future employment opportunities benefiting individuals and the Latino community as a whole.  


She is currently a Global Commodity Manager in Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. She is Past President of the General Motors Hispanic Initiative Team, an affinity group sanctioned by the GM North American Strategy Board where she was president for 4 years.
