Hispanic Access Welcomes New MANO Project Program Manager

Category: News Releases

Hispanic Access is delighted to announce the addition of Angelica Juarez as the new MANO Project Program Manager to oversee the day-to-day operations of the MANO Project. The MANO project program connects, builds, and develops thoughtful Latino leaders who share a passion for serving and strengthening their communities.

“I’m passionate about increasing the representation of BIPOC professionals in the environmental sector,” said Juarez. “The Latino community is deeply impacted by environmental injustices, so we deserve a seat at the table to advocate for our communities.”

Juarez will assist in the development of program plans, budgets, and timelines; help identify potential partners, sponsors, or donors to support program initiatives; assist program associates and provide guidance, support, and resources as needed; and implement changes and enhancements to optimize program outcomes.

“Angelica is very knowledgeable about the cultural and social dynamics of Spanish-speaking communities,” said Maite Arce, president and CEO of Hispanic Access. “She has an in-depth understanding of workforce development challenges and opportunities faced by Latino college students and graduates.”

Juarez obtained a dual degree in Molecular Environmental Biology and Environmental Economics and Policy from the University of California, Berkeley. Through her work as an Associate Consultant and Project Manager in the consulting sector, she helped companies solve complex problems centered around sustainability. Finding herself one of the few people of color in these spaces, she decided to do a career shift and focus on DEI efforts. Before Hispanic Access, Angelica served as a Program Manager for the Traditional Trades Advancement Program (TTAP) where she helped connect diverse youth to trades internships with the National Park Service.
