Andrea Guendelman, Co-founder + CEO of BeVisible, takes us inside the company culture of a startup driving change in the Latinx professional community, empowering men and women to embrace the strengths, and transcend the limitations, of their cultural heritage to achieve ambitious career goals.
- Mission -
We help Latinx: build social capital; connect to more opportunities, people, and resources; become more aware of what is possible and who we can become; and to take action.
- About -
BeVisible is an online career platform, social network, and movement to raise the profile of Latinx in the United States. The Latinx community is underrepresented in the tech industry and on professional networks like LinkedIn. BeVisible rewards individuals for helping each other rather than the past opportunities apparent on their resumes, giving all Latinx, especially Latinas, the support and opportunities they need to reach the career success they desire.
Latinx is a gender-neutral substitute for Latino(s) or Latina(s).
