Maria Melendez is the Global Chief Diversity Officer at a top ten Am Law law firm and before that, was a litigation partner for 27 years.  In this two-part series, Maria shares her journey from Ponce, Puerto Rico to partnership and her current role.  We dig into how to integrate work and family, how to shift your mindset so it serves you, what it means to be one of the few as BIPOC women in a predominantly white male environment and the belief we need to have that we truly belong (because we do), and how to navigate the challenges and thoughts as women to move towards what we want in career and life.
