Ep. 7 – Barbara Fernandez Valdes, Educator & My Amazing Mother

Barbara Fernandez Valdes

Today’s show is a special one because I interview an amazing woman who was in education for over 30 years, who fought for equal rights for her students and lastly and selfishly most important is my loving mother.

I recorded this show while taking the altMBA and I am so glad I did it because I got to see a side of my mom you don’t normally get to know and on top of that record. I learned a lot more about her childhood, her struggles, and the perseverance she portrayed early on in her life to accomplish her dreams.

Outside of me bragging about my mom, October is a special month for her because her favorite holiday is Halloween and she also celebrates her wedding anniversary with my dad on the 29th.

I have no doubt that listening to this episode will give you some behind the scenes information on my mom’s story as a Latina and growing up with my grandparents who came to the US to seek a better life. Enjoy and let me know your favorite part in the comments!

Ep. 2 – Yai Vargas, Latinx Diversity & Strategy Expert

This episode set a high watermark for my future episodes but that only motivates me to really keep up finding high quality guests and interviews.
I’ll be honest, I recorded this episode in February 2019 and it took me a while to face my fears to really kick off the podcast. Even though this was recorded months ago it offers timeless advice that both women and men can use to really propel their careers and life skills.

Yai who reigns from the Dominican Republic has focused her career on diversity and moreover the inclusion and success for women in the workplace. Seven years ago she created the Latinista which is an organization focused on the professional development that has satellite offices in Chicago, Miami, LA with their home base in New York. The Latinista was born when Yai noticed the need for professional development for Latinas. She’s a hands on trainer who gets right to work with all the women (and men) who come and participate in her workshops. I definitely recommend you check out and attend her next workshop.
We dive into issues of DNI, affinity groups, and navigating the corporate office to achieve your career aspirations.

Lastly we close with some great takeaways on:

  • What can women do to establish a fair playing field in business and life to close the gap in the gender inequality?
  • What can men do immediately to help support women empowerment?

My biggest takeaway learned from the episode:

Be bold, offer value, and unapologetic and strategic in working towards your goals!

Allow me to introduce the Platform Latino Podcast! This has been a work in progress and I am glad to have it finally launch. Listen to the first episode to find out who I am, what inspired me to start the podcast and my goals for the podcast.

I’m mixed with wonderful feelings from happiness, to share this with the world, to scared to see how it will be received. In the end I know sharing the stories of these amazing Latino/a’s will be a positive influence to all who listen.
