Get Inspired To Be Your Authentic Self and Speak Up in the Workplace With the Advice of These Experts
Having a seat at the table is no longer enough for Latinas in the workplace; finding and using your unique voice when you're there to express a point a view, share your ideas or show your worth to an organization is paramount.
This was one of the conclusions reached by Daisy Auger-Domínguez, Chief People Officer at VICE Media Group; Nydia Sahagun, head brand and acquisition marketing manager for Humana's Primary Care Organization; and Nely Galán, real estate and media entrepreneur and the first Latina president of entertainment for a U.S. television network, Telemundo, during the panel Latinas in the Workplace, which was moderated by People en Español Vice President, Publisher Monique Manso.
