LATINA INSIGHT ACADEMY

Career Strategy Group

Dr. Pertuz draws from over 25 years of professional experience and her research to create a focused career strategy group coaching program. Career-minded Latinas are invited to learn how to recognize their values, track and communicate their accomplishments effectively, and to negotiate their maximum earnings. Sofia knows firsthand that women of color encounter barriers as they navigate careers in toxic work environments. She shows aspiring leaders that with preparation and research, these barriers can be circumvented or knocked down.

Mission

Provide informed, insightful, and actionable career strategies and connections to position Latinas to recognize their brilliance and effectively share their accomplishments to become well-positioned and prepared to advance and excel professionally.

Ideal Participants

This program is designed for ambitious Latinas who are seeking guidance with navigating career challenges, beginning a new role, or who are currently searching for new opportunities.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

" Before participating in Sofia's group, I had limited knowledge on the numerous career strategies that exist and how to effectively navigate work politics. After our sessions, I strengthened my interviewing skills/techniques, had a better understanding of how to "play the game", and learned strategies to help me advance my career and grow professionally.

 

Sofia's wealth of knowledge and expertise, along with her kind personality and easy-going manner, make her a pleasure to work with. She took into account cultural and familial values and how this impacts our identity and work, which is something that our community truly needs.

I highly recommend working with Sofia if you have the opportunity to."
