Episode #244

Maricella Herrera Avila

CEO of Ellevate Network

Maricella Herrera Avila grew up in Mexico working in male-dominated fields. While she didn’t immediately know that leadership was her path, she eventually found herself as CEO of Ellevate Network, the largest community for women at work focused on creating a culture of equity and inclusion in business. 

In this episode, Maricella tells us about her path to becoming a CEO, starting with her previous career in banking. After she realized this field wasn’t for her, she set out on a path of curiosity and discovery that led her to where she is today. Learn how she turned a love for puzzles and how things fit together into her current role as CEO. Maricella had to switch her definition of success from what she learned from her upbringing. Instead, she focuses on learning along the way and both giving and taking when she’s networking. She’s always asking questions and listening to what people have to say. We learned a lot from Maricella’s journey and know you will too.

"If you can help one or two or a few people, that to me, becomes success."
