“If you want to lift yourself, lift up someone else.”
- Booker T. Washington.
Many studies suggest that giving back can actually boost your overall life satisfaction. I couldn’t agree more.
Here are some recent activities I am doing for my community:
I serve as President of the Board of Directors at the Beauty Bus Foundation. I'm privileged to lead an organization dedicated to delivering love, support, and compassion to seriously ill patients and their caregivers through beauty services. If you're interested in volunteering, I'd be delighted to chat. For those looking to make a difference in other ways, any amount you can donate is genuinely appreciated
I had the honor of attending the Women's Peace & Humanitarian Fund Inaugural Gala. The theme of Portraits of Strength and Resilience emphasized the incredible power that comes from storytelling, allowing us to meet trailblazing women solving the world's toughest challenges.
Attended the California Spirit Fundraiser, to celebrate the American Cancer Society's progress in the fight against cancer.
As a champion of diversity and inclusion, I also try to embed myself in the Latinx community inside and outside of work, because as many have said, “if you can see it, you can be it”.
This is how I am contributing in this space:

By building community in the workplace
As a first generation Latina, Liliana is well aware of the many challenges other women, and Latinas go through as they try to climb up in their careers. Many times she’s been the only Latina at the table, and although she understands there is power in that, there is even more power when you understand your role, when you know the power of your voice and know how to use it to lift yourself and others, despite who is sitting next to you.
This is the way she gives back, by doing!
Recurring mentor to young professionals
