Focusing on the first five years of a young professional's career, First-Gen, NextGen explores the formation of first-generation Latinx individual's identities by redefining what it means to be Latinx in the American workplace. The reader dives headfirst into interviews with Latinx executive leaders, activists, and entrepreneurs who discuss this generation's management of an all too complex environment.
Banuelos sheds light on a generation that is capable of enacting positive reform by investigating:
Key accelerants Latinx corporate leaders used to advance their careers when they were young professionals
Unique challenges Latinx employees face in the workplace and how to overcome them
Targeted approaches for workplaces to become more inclusive of Latinx individuals and their employee base as a whole
Ways for organizations to go beyond the "business case" for diversity and understand that, when all individuals thrive as who they are, companies are better equipped to meet the needs of their customers and audiences
Victoria Banuelos' First-Gen, NextGen will give readers a sense of hope for the future of the American workforce and a better understanding of how to navigate it.
