Spoke at a conference
Facilitated a networking session at the annual Prospanica Conference.

Here's a summary:
Specially designed for women only, this networking hour is an opportunity to connect with other Latinas who lead or are preparing to. Inspired by the Athena Advantage framework for women of color, we'll guide you through personal reflection and group conversations on personal values, identity, and how they shape your professional sphere of influence. Join us for this unique opportunity to grow your network while gaining clarity around your motivations and how to show up as a more authentic you!

Hosted a workshop
I had the pleasure of hosting Barika Porter of Choose Change Connect to discuss values in our work and personal lives.

Defined a Product Strategy
Combined several years of research along with lessons learned from previous projects (e.g., Memo Rogue and c.type) to create Athena's strategy and overview document.

Vision Statement
Athena seeks to transform today's workplace from the inside-out by empowering women of color to advocate on behalf of themselves and others through content that is:

  • anecdotal, encouraging empathy and camaraderie via storytelling, and;
  • actionable, providing non-confrontational and practical approaches to workplace issues.
