My name is Yvette De Luna, an experienced and passionate employment attorney, and I am on a mission to unleash the leadership potential of BIPOC women. Throughout my life, I have been a hard worker, a mother, a wife, then a widow, a daughter, a sister, and now a grandmother- just like so many, many women are.
As an employment attorney, I learned hands on just how important it is to empower leaders with the right skills so that they can build respectful and resilient workplace cultures. After all, work should be a positive and shared human experience, not just a means to an end. In fact, the future of work is giving "self-managed" vibes. This type of brave new work world requires emotional and relational skills. I designed a valuable framework called R.E.D. which utilizes relationship building and our dream, my dream is to upskill BIPOC women with it and help them become agents of change and trusted leaders in the workplace.
We will deem "mission accomplished" when BIPOC women get recognized, in the C Suite, in their community or at home, as the most able in creating empowered, connected, and thriving teams. The plan that brings us here is that BE Human Leadership is willing to certify BIPOC women in R.E.D. (Find out here the details of the R.E.D. Relational Framework for Leaders), free of charge to them and in exchange for the commitment to train at least two (2) other BIPOC women in R.E.D.. The training would be offered in English and Spanish because there is a lack of published materials and a lack of trainings in Spanish to upskill BIPOC into agents of change with relational and emotional skills.
I faced financial difficulties following Hurricane Maria, but I have not let that stop the drive to bring BE Human Leadership's message to the forefront. The message is: let's transform workplaces into human growth spaces. I wrote the book Relationship Driven Leadership: 3 Skills for Connected Relationships with Teams during the time I was recuperating from the loses that the Hurricane brought to my life.
This is why I am turning to you and I am asking for help, your support, your strength. A 63 year old woman like me, relentlessly working on making workplaces better for all and with a complete financial rehauling as recently as at 57 years of age, is hardly the dream client of bankers, venture capitalists and the traditional sources of funding. However, there might be space for me in this community and for the dream of transforming workplaces into human growth spaces. I hope that you find it in your heart and mind the will to help prove that there is no age limit where you can push through, make dreams come through and help the world be a better place for all.
That's why I am asking you to join me in raising $4,850.00 to:
With your support, I am confident that I can make a lasting impact and create a brighter future for BIPOC women in the United States. Let's come together and empower these women to reach their full potential. Thank you for your generosity and belief in our mission at BE Human Leadership.
