Why Ignite Matters

Hear from Former Ignite Participants

Fuel for My Leadership Journey

“I strongly recommend this culturally relevant program for all levels of leadership. I wish I had this training earlier to understand the challenges I would face in my career.

It was a sigh of relief to hear others’ experiences were similar in trying to keep our personal and cultural identity.

Because of Ignite, I have developed lifelong relationships that will promote empowerment, collaboration, and fuel for my leadership journey.”

Rebecca Martinez

Ignite Facilitator

My Latinidad is a Strength

“I have participated in several leadership programs, but none as rewarding as Ignite. This was the first time my cultural identity was the primary factor. 

Too often I have felt invisible as a Latino professional but now I feel included, respected, and valued.

I learned that my Latinidad is a strength versus a weakness. I highly recommend Ignite to anyone seeking to take their leadership to the next level and see the strength in their Latinidad.”

Mark Delgado
Lead Relationship Manager – National Accounts

Unapologetically Latina

“As a Latina, one of my biggest struggles was questioning my roots and identity within the greater community, resulting in imposter syndrome. I always apologized for who I was, and for what I wasn’t.

During Ignite, I learned about my personal ambition and developed attitudes, abilities, and actions that I will definitely be implementing as I continue on my leadership journey.

I am blessed to have been a part of the Ignite program, and will no longer apologize for who I am.”
