We are thrilled to unveil our next cover is none other than Julián Castro (@juliancastrotx ). In fact, it’s the first elected public official we’ve ever featured on the cover of this magazine—and ahead of tonight’s presidential debate, we couldn't be more proud to share this stellar feature for our Top Ten Líderes annual issue. “This is an executive position. [US Presidents] have to be confident, effective executives who realize that their role is to set a strong, bold vision, to hold people working for you accountable to achieve that vision. You have to remember that you are only one of three branches. The best presidents understood that,” says the 2020 presidential candidate in his interview with Ruben Navarrette (@rubennavarrette9296 ). For the full cover story, go to the link in our bio today.

“I am an American first, before I am anything else. It is how I walk through every door. I don’t walk into a place thinking I’m Latina or that I’m Black. I walk in knowing that I’m an American first.” -@zoesaldana  📸: @yopeteryang  . . .#magazines  #hispanicexecutive  #leadinglatinas  #bese  #zoesaldana  #americana  #design  #print  #printdesign  #photography  #latinx  #identity

“I want young Mexican-American individuals to desire to lead businesses because there are examples of success. We need more business mentors reaching these individuals.” Miguel Gastellum of FTS International says that he’s been the one of the few Mexican-Americans in nearly everything he’s done. That experience has established his belief that it’s important for #Hispanic  leaders to help shape the next generation. “We need to get in front of our youth and show them that people have out gone and done it,” Gastellum says.

The most effective catalysts for our community’s advancement are platforms that allow #Latinos  in positions of influence to come together so they can connect with other like-minded professionals and learn from each other’s experiences. As the old dicho says: “Dime con quien vas y te dire quien eres.” Having the right connections engenders a prominent professional reputation, which, in turn, feeds the strength of your network. It’s a symbiosis that takes years to build. 📩 To continue reading this letter from the Publisher, on Making Connections, head on over to our link in bio. 📸: @gillianfry

Raquel Tamez, the ‘Feisty Latina’ at the helm of the @shpenational , speaks truth to power in our exclusive interview with this leading CEO. “There are the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ when it comes to diversity and inclusion,” says Tamez. “When budgets are small or are being slashed, for some reason Hispanics are getting the short end of the stick. I see it every day." Perhaps just as troubling—if not more so, because it’s on a more personal level—are the biases Tamez occasionally experiences in interactions with certain folks in the #STEM  space. Since her decades of work in the male-dominated legal field, she actually has experienced an uptick in chauvinistic microaggressions in her new role. “Maybe it’s the CEO title and position, but I feel that men—chiefly, Latinos, unfortunately—are trying to put me in my place, in sometimes subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle ways,” she says. She recounts comments such as, “Raquel, you’re not being sensitive enough,” and “Raquel, you’re trying to flex your muscles.” “When would they ever say that to a male CEO?” she asks. “They wouldn’t.” ✔️ More from this courageous interview in 🔗 in bio. 📸: @davidwiegoldphotography  #LeadingLatinas

After twenty-nine years and so many key positions in one organization, associates and new employees often ask Ernesto Soler, SVP, Head or Administration at @popularbank  to describe the key to success and advancement. “It’s two things,” he says, “First and foremost, you have to be ready for anything that may come your way—always be curious and hungry to learn. And the second one is some degree of luck. You have to be in the right place at the right time.”

Women face an uphill battle in the worlds of science and technology, from #STEM  programs in early education all the way to the boardroom. The disparity is even greater for women of color. Despite those long odds, Maria Martinez’s résumé brims with the highest-profile names in the world of technology: AT&T, Bell Labs, Motorola, Microsoft, Salesforce, and @cisco  Systems, for which she currently serves as executive vice president and chief customer experience officer. In addition to helping the multinational firm excel, Martinez hopes to encourage more #Latinas  to find career success in the technology field. #leadinglatinas

One week ago today, our Latinx brand @nextgencollective  hosted a New York event in partnership with @goldmansachs.  One of our favorite moments of the night came when, during the panel discussion, Josean Fernández, director at @blackrock , said: “You are in complete control of your career. I think #Latinos  believe, and my mom would always say this, ‘Si Dios quiere.’ And she’s so sweet, but . . . no! I want it! I know she means well, but we have to take ownership of our career.” Check out photos and be sure to sign up for the #nextgencollective  newsletter for more events, inspirational stories, and relevant content for rising leaders, by visiting their profile at @nextgencollective.  💃🏽 📸: @sheilabarabad

We recently sat down with Jon Garcia, president and founder, RTS at @mckinseyco  and here’s what he had to say about the 1999 Fantasy/Sci-fi movie The Matrix: “Love what you do and take some risks,” he says. “Life is a lot like The Matrix. We often don’t realize how much we can shape our own lives. We can do so much more than we imagine if we just go for it.” 👊🏽 #mondaymotivation

It was April 2013, and President Obama was preparing for a state visit to Mexico. Nathalie Rayes stood in the intimate Roosevelt Room of the White House, among thirteen other experts briefing the president for his journey. It was a bucket-list moment, and it clicked: she had become one of the nation’s leading authorities on US-Mexico relations. Rayes—vice president of public affairs in the United States for Grupo Salinas (@gruposalinas ), a $6 billion Mexican group of companies—now uses her authority to ensure other #Latinas  have a seat at the table, whether in politics, business, or the social sector.#LeadingLatinas
