Elisa Charters is a passionate advocate for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) and the BIPOC community of women. She is a First generation college student, first generation in this country born and raised here. 

In 2014, Elisa co-founded Latina Surge National non-profit, an extension of her community work at several organizations for 20+ years. 

LSN’s mission is charitable and educational in advancing DEIB; its vision is to achieve parity for women across government, corporate America, and higher education and greater access for small business growth. 

In this episode we talk about what it means to be self empowered and to be IN POWER, cultural expectations that can impact how we move through the world particularly in our careers especially as Latinas, women of color, or if you’re first gen – this feeling of not being good enough, the constant push for upward mobility and how sitting still can feel uncomfortable because we are so used to pushing through and trying to achieve that upward mobility for so many reasons (many of which are embedded in our own upbringings and culture and community).  We also delve into the systemic barriers we face and what can be done to address them.  Elisa has her own personal view of what we can do and where our power really lies in breaking down barriers.
