Nuestra Gente: Lyanne Alfaro, Adelante Co-Chair, Explains How Nasdaq Engages in Meaningful Conversations
Adelante Nasdaq! – The Nasdaq Employee Resource Group (ERG), bringing together our Hispanic, Latino, Indigenous communities and allies, celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month. This month, we profile our members and their diverse backgrounds, talking about their roles and what it means to be an ally.
Meet Lyanne Alfaro, Adelante Co-Lead, Supervising Director and Social Media Content Director, who is of Mexican origin and speaks Spanish and English.
Tell us about your role at Nasdaq.
I supervise the production of social multimedia assets. In particular, I focus on podcasts, livestreams, and social videos. In addition, this year I had the great opportunity to develop brand campaigns and deploy them on social networks alongside multimedia assets. Any day, I can set up an interview with a new company in the Nasdaq family or set up a rollout plan for a new episode of our podcast, Tomorrow’s Capital.
How would you describe Adelante to a new hire?
I would describe Adelante as a growing space for Latinx, Afro-Latinx, Hispanic, native people and more. Given how new the group is, there are plenty of opportunities to look into projects, increase membership, and represent members on Nasdaq. There’s also the opportunity to partner with other big tech companies to celebrate the diversity of our affinity groups and do meaningful work.
Favorite memory while being part of the ERG?
I enjoyed working on the Hispanic Heritage Month recap video last year and the Adelate events that brought companies like Airbnb, Prospanica, and Univision together at Nasdaq. It was an opportunity to show the events of the Nasdaq and our ability to bring people together in person.
How to be a good ally of the Latino community?
Approach the Adelante group and professional affinity groups in your city! There is a lot to learn from the career perspective of different ERGs and also how to make an impact in your direct communities.
