Diversity and Inclusion
As we wrap up National Hispanic Heritage Month, we asked Fastly’s Deanna Gonzalez Barshop and Estella Gonzalez Madison to share their perspectives on why they chose to identify as Latinx rather than Hispanic. Here’s what they shared: “While these terms are often used interchangeably, they have slightly different connotations. Hispanic largely encompasses the peoples of Spanish-speaking Latin America, many of which were former territories of Spain. Because of its narrow scope and reminder of colonization, we prefer to use Latinx or Latine, both gender-neutral forms of Latino/a. These are more inclusive of both non-Spanish speaking countries and the diversity within the community, including Indigenous peoples, Afro Latinos, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. We want to support those who find themselves excluded from the conversation, those who are looking for a word that includes them. That’s why we chose ‘Ni de aquí, ni de allá’, or ‘not from here, not from there’ to be our theme, to encourage each of us to embrace all of our identities and our own authentic selves."

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    Interview

    lengthy interview process to get to the end and tell me the role wasn't in the budget for the quarter. Two month process for a position that wasn't approved. Not sure why having multiple rounds of interviews for a role that is not approved in the budget makes sense or if it was a passive way of passing on a candidate without real feedback.
