The ¿Quién Tú Eres? Interview

authenticity leadership Mar 16, 2022

How much more fulfilled and productive would you be if you could bring your whole self to work?

In this episode of the ¿Quién Tú Eres? podcast I sat down with host Pabel Martinez, CEO of PLURAWL, and left it all on the table about my experiences working in Tech as an out gay first-gen Puerto Rican from The Bronx.

Discrimination? Yup. 

Being overlooked for a promotion? Definitely.

Made to feel like I was being done a favor for having a seat at the table? Over and over again. 

When being the good, obedient, relatable little gay Latin boy didn’t pay dividends I stopped playing the game on their terms — and I brought my whole self to the conversation.

Gracias Pabel Martinez for this incredible opportunity to leave it all on the table. You created the safest space possible for me to reveal my deepest truths, and I'm so thankful to you for the work you're doing to amplify our voices and experiences. The work ain't done, but it feels a little less overwhelming knowing that we have leaders like you in rank looking out for us. Mil gracias hermano! I trust our conversation will reach someone who really needed to hear it.
