Upwork Talent Huddle: Celebrating and Defining Hispanic Community
Date & Time: Friday, October 14, at 12:00 PM CST
Meet the Host and the Speakers:
Flo Favarel, a communication design expert helping people to deliver their messages, engage their audience, and get results. To do so, I combine my experience and knowledge in Business, Design, and Communications. I've been freelancing on Upwork for six years, allowing me to grow in my profession, learn and connect with amazing people and companies of all sizes. From the most innovative startups to well-established multinational Companies (F500). I'm an Upwork Top rated plus and Expert Vetted freelancer.
Maria Paz Salgado, a Program Coordinator for the Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Team. In 2020, and with Covid at its highest, I had to quit my job in the hospitality industry and decided to make a drastic change in my career. At that time, working remotely was something totally unheard of in Chile. And as an extrovert, I simply couldn’t imagine working with people that I could only interact with through a computer screen.
And yet, I took the leap… It’s been 2 years since I started working as a Freelancer for Upwork, and I can say without a doubt that working here has completely changed my life, and the way I think about my professional career. Today, I can proudly say that I’m Top Rated Plus with 100% Job Success! Upwork’s mission is to create economic opportunities so people have better lives. And that’s exactly what it gave me.
Marcela Colimodio, a Virtual Assistant to Erin Thomas and the DIBs team. I started working as a virtual executive assistant when zoom was not even a thing! The challenge of connecting remotely with my team comes naturally to me. I love the fact that my work helps my leaders to have a smooth running of their days, at least calendar-wise, so they can focus on making decisions instead of juggling calendars to find time to meet with people throughout the day. Many times we can give support in several projects, plan events, and so many other important administrative tasks. And the funny part of this is that we do it all in 8 hours or less. But what I love the most is that I am working in a Company that takes good care of its Talent, making the mission statement a fact, not just a group of nice words written on a website.
