In Valeria Aloe’s Uncolonized Latinas: Transforming our Mindsets and Rising Together we discover that, in order to improve the world, we must first start with ourselves. This book takes us on a journey to do just that. Along the way we meet immigrant Latinas and daughters of immigrants who, through trials and tribulations, have uncolonized their limiting mindsets and have found their true selves.
This book guides us to:
- Embrace our individual and collective greatness, as we honor our stories and our ancestry.
- Become more aware of the limiting cultural narratives that have been running us.
- As a Latina, thrive in your career and life from a place of self-esteem, as you learn from those Latinas who figured out how to navigate the system.
- As an Ally, feel confident and become more effective when mentoring diverse talent.
Through this journey we can learn how to experience transformational change—open our heart, mind, and eyes.
