I am passionate about diversity because I know what it feels like to not fit in. As a Latino working in the tech industry, it can be tough to find a sense of culture that is relatable and this is the reason why I have taken a leadership role within our LatinX Employee Resource Group (HOLA).
As the External Partnerships lead, I was responsible for building relationships with all of the other LatinX Employee Resource Groups & provide our members with opportunities for personal & professional growth. My goal is to create as many belonging moments for all Latinos by constantly creating safe spaces for people to feel like they can be their authentic selves.
During my first month in this role, I hosted an event that welcomed 165 Latinos from 82 different companies for a night that included networking, a private screening of "Being ñ", and an opportunity for attendees to share their stories with the director of the film. Attendees gave the event a Net Promoter Score of 90. Check out the video below for a full recap! 🙌🏾
