Luis Curiel currently sits on the People Team managing strategy and operations at Twitter, and also serves as the global co-chair for Twitter Alas, our Latinx business resource group.

Luis, a first-generation American, traces his Latinx roots to Honduras. Born and raised in California, he studied biopsychology and worked in agricultural research before making the transition to tech.

In this episode we talked more about how previous skills and experiences can be transferred to tech, the impact Latinxs are making in tech which makes the scenario totally different from 5 years ago but at the same time how we still have a lot of work to do. Luis shared with us his perspective as our @recruiterfriend to those who made it and now have the opportunity to make an impact for others.
