Program Manager, Education Partnerships

Every day, I get to work on programs that create pathways, helping people from underrepresented groups—with diverse backgrounds and perspectives—be proportionally represented in the employee populations of companies like Facebook.

The most exciting and challenging part of my job as a program manager is designing impactful learning experiences for youth to explore computer programming and careers in technology. I was the first in my family to graduate from high school and from college, so I understand how much educational programs and mentors can impact our lives. And as a Latina from an immigrant family, I’m honored to have the privilege to work with—and for—underrepresented communities that I relate to, helping to build access to opportunities for all.
