Welcome to NLBWA-LA Online                                


Our organization was created and launched in July of 2003 to meet the needs of the growing ranks of Latina Entrepreneurs, Executives and Professionals from the Greater Los Angeles area.

Our Mission is to encourage women and men to develop their business and professional skills and to exceed their career goals through education, business referrals and networking.


Shining Bright In The Spotlight

Carmen Rad is President of CR&A Custom, Inc., the only minority- and woman-owned, large-format digital printer and outdoor advertising company in United States. Carmen started CR&A 21 years ago because an employer failed to pay her and she knew she had what it took to be an entrepreneur. Over the past 16 years the company has grown to nearly 30 employees and into a new 24,000 square-foot building.
CR&A is a full-service large digital print production and visual display company that produces and installs billboards, all indoor and outdoor banners, fleet graphics, vehicle wraps, window, wall and floor graphics, sports and stadium signage, and all types of trade show graphics and exhibit booths.

Carmen’s company began producing custom embroidery work and promotional items and have transitioned to primarily large format digital printing serving clients such as Disney, Coors, Coca-Cola and Nike.

More recently, Carmen became the first Latina Chairwoman of the National Association Women Business Owners (NAWBO).
