Talita Sueldo joined EWAAB in 2020 as a Secondary Mentor for a group of students at her alma mater, William & Mary. Following her contributions as a mentor Talita was asked to join EWAAB's Board of Trustees where she uses her passion and skills to help the organization grow. We caught up with her this week to learn more about her volunteer experience with EWAAB so far.
What was your favorite part about serving as a Secondary Mentor for EWAAB's Bridge program?
I really loved connecting with the William and Mary students and hearing about their experiences on campus. A lot of the conversation took me back to when I was there and I hope that I was able to provide some good advice.
Why do you continue to support EWAAB as a board member?
I deeply believe in EWAAB's mission: women and non-binary folks should have the network, resources, and support to do whatever they want in their careers. Being a part of the EWAAB board gives me the opportunity to work behind the scenes with like-minded women to help create environments where women and non-binary folks can thrive and that is really fulfilling for me.
