This month Telemundo highlighted Latina women who have created a great impact within the community through various initiatives. This series was called Mujeres Imperables where Telemundo celebrated everyday women who have pushed for progression in various sectors of society. A wide variety of women were celebrated including Carla Vernon, our very own Sandra Elisa García, founder of Afro-Latina Beauty and others like Diana Guerrero and Rocío Guerrero Colomo.

Sandra Elisa Garcia expresses the urge for Latino representation throughout the world.

“Necesitamos trabajar en la representación para que podamos vernos a nosotros mismos allí afuera en el mundo”

“We need to work on representation so we can see ourselves out there in the world” on representation so we can see ourselves out there in the world”

The corporate space can be an intimidating one where people feel the need to hide part of themselves. As a person with a diverse background, there can be even more pressure to fit a certain image and show up to work in a certain manner.

Google held their first Black and Latinx Publishers Summit last December, a virtual event designed to provide a community for Black and Latinx publishers, creators, and web developers to come together. Creators from diverse backgrounds gathered to discuss digital advertising, growing your audience and maximizing your earning potential. I led a 25min session themed "Empowered Entrepreneurship''.

There were many takeaways from the summit including Sandra Garcia’s suggestion which focused on having a brand that stays consistent across multiple platforms. This suggestion allows you to master your own content and have an effective online presence. Through this, you become a reliable content curator, lure in more collaborative deals, and legitimize your brand.
