Latina South welcomes Ana Baskharone. Ana Baskharone is a director in a large utilities company headquartered in Houston, Texas. After 30 years of working hard, Ana began to feel stuck in her career—so she hired a coach. That move, among others, helped her to land a new position when she began to advocate for herself and share her story as a leader. Ana talks about her Latina identity and her journey as a first generation college student to corporate director. She describes her love of golf and its parallels to life. She also shares her passion for early childhood education as a Board member of nonprofit, Collaborative for Children.
“It’s important that you network with other leaders, directors – not necessarily just executives – so that they are advocating for you as well. It’s not just a one of one, it’s one of many conversations that you have to have to build that network and for others to also be able to envision how you can be part of that leadership team”
