  • “Growing up I didn’t think you could share your aspirations out loud–I didn't know it was okay to be ambitious. Later, I learned you need to take ownership of your career, and I decided to be in charge of my future,” said Elizabeth Nieto, Global Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, during a panel at the Proud To Be Latina 8th Annual Latina Empowerment and Leadership Conference in New York.

    Proud To Be Latina provides a platform for top industry thought-leaders, corporate executives, and professionals to provide insight and facilitate workshops for community-building, leadership training, and opportunity development.

  • “Once you understand your purpose in an organization and the role of each department, you can then begin to contribute towards your company’s success.”
