Are your cultural beliefs keeping you from getting that promotion?


I am so proud of this latest piece I wrote for LATINA magazine. This is about leaning in Latina style. For Hispanic women in the workplace (and at home too) it's not just limiting gender beliefs that can keep us from success, but cultural beliefs. Like, "good Latina girls are not aggressive," or we grapple with respecting elders and don't know how to stand up to authority figures, or we are afraid to makes make waves coz we look más bonitas when we are calladitas...

In the piece I explore four cultural roadblocks that many Latinas grapple with but also feature coaching tips to over come these hurdles:
  • Do you like playing humble?
  • Do you sometimes believe you don't deserve that corner office, or to be CEO? 
  • Do you have an issue standing up to authority figures?
  • And do you get pressured to live up to the good daughters should be married, preferably with a man and with kids?



Is it time you check what you've been told about what you can or cannot do because you are Latina, a woman or a woman of color or all three?

Many times it's our own self imposed and super imposed cultural beliefs that sabotage our ability to achieve greater personal and professional success. I hope you get to pick up the issue now on newsstands. And I hope that it provokes some thoughtful conversation with you, your girlfriends, guyfriends, coworkers and loved ones. Because maybe, the one thing keeping you from that corner office may be the chick you are looking at the mirror.

You can also pick up my book, The New Latina's Bible, where I explore this deeply ingrained cultural training.  Keep shining my beautiful señoritas!
