We'll talk about overcoming obstacles, how to pave new pathways, and finding creative strategies to confidently persist in an engineering career.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Diana Ortega is the Quality Launch Manager for future vehicle programs at General Motors Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plant. Being a role model for STEM advocacy is her passion. Diana was recognized in 2014 by HACR as a Young Hispanic Corporate Achiever, and she led GM’s SHPE Recruiting Team.

As a member of SHPE, you’ve already revealed who you are— motivated, hard-working, committed. Now it’s time to show what you can be, to show what distinguishes you from the many qualified individuals looking to make it in today’s economy. This program will help you identify that special something—that X-factor—and use it to excel as a student, a professional, and leader. In monthly webinars, our subject matter experts will cover topics ranging from how to ace an interview to navigating the impact of cultural norms on communication and the role of gender and age in the workplace. Though designed with our student members in mind, latinXfactor™ is open and beneficial to all professionals, those that are up-and-coming and those looking to make a change. The monthly webinars are at no cost to you and are an hour long. Although, the format is lecture-based, we have carved out time for questions and answers. Mark your calendar now for 8pm ET/5pm PT on the last Wednesday of every month as we continue to offer expert advice on relevant topics.
