Iris and Abril were asked about the impact of VE, particularly on students of color and female students. Abril also talked about her own experience as a VE student and how she grew after going through the program as a CEO.
“If these students, from diverse backgrounds, could see themselves as CEO, CFO, head of HR or marketing, they go out into the world and think ‘why can’t I be CEO?’ and they would graduate with the audacity to succeed.” – Abril Peña, VE Engagement Coordinator
