Born in Cuba, Maria immigrated to the U.S. with her family as a four-year old. Her formative experiences as an immigrant is partly what drew her to work in the diversity and inclusion (D&I) field. Throughout her career of 35 years, Maria has developed inclusion and diversity training and successfully trained thousands of executives, managers, and employees across a wide range of industries. Maria stood out in the field because of her compassionate approach, powerful ability to connect people, and success at building inclusive cultures. In 2013, she launched Inclusity to pursue an empathetic, inclusion-focused approach to D&I work, believing that when we “lead with inclusion, diversity will follow.” Prior to Inclusity, Maria was executive vice president of Pope & Associates, a leading D&I training and consulting firm, and vice president of human resources for R. R. Donnelley Logistics. She began her career at Procter and Gamble Company, where she became the company’s first Hispanic sales and marketing manager. Maria’s compassion also extends to the community. She currently serves on the board of the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, is a Rotary member, and previously served in an advisory capacity on the U.S. Senate Task Force on Hispanic Affairs. Maria has an M.A. in counseling from Xavier University and a B.A. in communications from the University of Toledo. She holds a certification in PROSCI change management. She works out of the central Inclusity office in Perrysburg, Ohio. Lunch and valet service is included with the program.
