Diversity & Inclusion

As a Latina woman who is a first-generation college graduate, I consider myself tremendously fortunate and want to pay it forward. I’m passionate about supporting women, Black and Latinx people, and girls in tech.

I’m Excited to Help

Contact me if you think I could be helpful as a pro-bono speaker, presenter, or mentor for your diversity-focused event or organization. Time permitting, I’m also happy to personally answer questions and share advice with other women & minority individuals who are establishing their careers.

I’ve also started a Diversity & Inclusion mailing list where I periodically write about and pass along news, ideas, upcoming events, and opportunities that may be of interest. Subscribe using the box that automatically appears on this page.
