Meet February’s “Member of the Month:” Laura A. Pérez Balderas, Diversity Agent, Audi Mexico
Why did you join the Women Automotive Network?
“I joined this network because I truly believe in sharing, I believe sharing our stories, our expertise and also sharing information is an opportunity for all to grow.”
Why is DE&I important to you?
“We are all different, what means that we are all diverse and the inclusion of this diversity in our daily lives will only become valuable when we understand this truth. Both diversity and inclusion are necessary: not only for innovation and business productivity, but also to ensure that the human rights of all people are respected.”
Who is your inspirational woman?
“For me every woman inspires me, because I know behind every human there is a story of failure, success, and challenges. So when I look at a woman I think about those stories and that inspires me.”
What is your proudest career moment?
“My proudest career moment was the day I got a job where I feel I can foster changes in people’s lives, a job where I can contribute to make this world a better place to live. My current job as a Diversity Agent allows me to foster diversity, equity and inclusion and that achievement makes me feel really proud.”
What is the greatest challenge you have had to overcome?
“I think my greatest challenge is to face my own fears and insecurities every day, to believe in me and all the great things I can do.”
