Nancy Torres


Why I am dedicated to the Latinx MBA Association

From Silicon Valley to Wall Street, I have too often been the only Latina, woman, or person of color in the room. Absent having mentors and role models who represented me and my community, I often encountered self-doubt and felt the need to cover up parts of my own cultural identity while developing my career. Now, I aspire to use my access and privilege to create more inclusive business environments where diverse leaders and communities can thrive. As one of the fastest-growing and most entrepreneurial segments in the U.S., the Latinx population is critical for the country's economic growth. The Latinx MBA Association is dedicated to developing and supporting the Latinx business leaders to start, build, and lead the companies and organizations behind this growth.
