How The Latinista Is Helping Take Careers to the Next Level
Have you ever wanted to amp up your professional presence but didn't have to tools or mindset to do so? Do you often feel passed over while your co-workers are climbing up the professional ladder?
Yai Vargas, a leading multicultural marketing expert, understood that many Latinas couldn't find the mentorship or guidance to help them navigate the professional waters. As a result she founded The Latinista, a network where she gathers and empowers Latina professionals in Miami, Chicago, and NYC to connect and effectively build community.
The Latinista offers a series of skill-building, activity driven, hands-on sessions, specifically designed to help identify and sharpen career and business skills required to achieve professional goals. It's a go-to resource for Latinas that helps develop skills needed to thrive not only professionally, but personally as well.
"It's important as women - as Latinas - that we help build each other up and share knowledge that is necessary to thrive in our careers," says Vargas, a New York native.
As a public speaker, Vargas is passionate about sharing her industry knowledge on various topics such as executive presence, personal branding, LinkedIn and Latina leaders in the workplace.
"If you're just beginning your career or already a seasoned professional, there are takeaways for everyone at The Latinista."
