YLNG had the pleasure of speaking with incoming Co-Chair Katherine Viera, Financial Analyst – Post Award, in the Department of Faculty Research Management Services.

What are you hoping to accomplish as the new Co-Chair of the Yale Latino Networking Group?
As the new Co-Chair for YLNG, I would like to seamlessly transition into my role, continue the hard work of my predecessor Diane Chandler, and work collaboratively with Co-Chair Jose DeJesus.
The areas that I would like to impact the most are:
  • Community involvement - As a lifelong resident of New Haven, I want to do more to engage our community and provide volunteer resources from our group
  • Collaborations with other affinity groups , to offer programming, resources, and continue social justice conversations
  • Offer career development resources/training to encourage the advancement of Latinx people at Yale
  • Engage Latinos so they can become active members of YLNG
