In my latest podcast, I had the pleasure of interviewing Denise Padin Collazo. She has just published her first book, Thriving in the Fight – A Survival Manual for Latinas on the Front Lines of Change. The messages in the book are applicable to any woman of colour as well as those that lead women of colour.
I first met Denise at Harvard when we attended the same Executive Education program. A couple of years later, she joined me in New York when I conducted Thought Leadership and Storytelling training.
Denise is a social justice leader, a mentor to fellow women of colour, and a family work integration innovator. She is squarely focused on encouraging women of colour to lead into their vision, live into their fullest selves, and love past negatives that hold them back.
Denise is the senior advisor for external affairs and director of institutional advancement at Faith in Action (formerly PICO National Network), the largest faith-based, progressive organising network in the U.S, where she has advanced the cause of social justice over the past twenty-five years.
Listen in to our conversation about Denise’s experience of writing and publishing her first book. You will witness first-hand how she is an extraordinary storyteller and thought leader as she shares some inspiring stories and wonderful insights. Her book is available now for pre-order at your favourite book retailer.
