I am a firm believer in the power of building an inclusive workplace where everybody feels safe and valued for being themselves. We each need to be the change we want to see in the world, and every one of us can have an enormous impact on others by just being visible and supportive.

I am a firm believer in the power of building an inclusive workplace where everybody feels safe and valued for being themselves. We each need to be the change we want to see in the world, and every one of us can have an enormous impact on others by just being visible and supportive. I am one of the leads for the Latin@ Facebook resource group in New York, and joined the Pride@ global group after the community helped me through my own discovery and coming out process. After seeing how committed Facebook is to inclusivity, I knew I wanted to help other people in these communities feel as encouraged and supported as I did during this part of my life.

Latin@ is a younger organization at Facebook, and we are constantly evolving and learning. I am proud of how we are working to better understand and leverage our own diversity—like nationalities, languages, and generations—to make our community even more inclusive.

Pride@ has been a safe space for many of us. I have seen firsthand how true human connections have been established and nurtured. And the group has done an amazing job of bringing awareness to topics like coming out, marriage equality, the trans community, among others. Not only that, but the group has started conversations and actions to tackle these topics. Being a visible member of these communities helps others visualize what they can accomplish. It reminds them that other people have gone through similar struggles and are there to help them achieve their goals.
