America Back to Work Ep 27: Priscilla Guasso, Latinas Rising Up In HR

Lifting Up Underrepresented Voices In HR

Priscilla Guasso is the founder of Latinas Rising Up in HR—a community of purpose-driven women elevating each other in the human resources discipline—as well as an HR leader with deep experience across talent management, development, and diversity. She saw a need for this community when she realized not many individuals in HR were advocating for people who looked like her—Latina women.

Throughout her career, Priscilla has learned a lot about the power of mentorship, giving other women confidence, considering the voices of others, and the boundaries of work and life. So much so that she wrote a best-selling, two-volume series showcasing stories of Latinas and making their mark on the HR profession.

Listen to this installment of America Back to Work to gain insights on lifting up underrepresented voices in HR.
