Angelica Juárez

MANO Project Program Manager

Angelica's professional journey in the environmental sector was heavily influenced by her upbringing in South East LA. Living near an industrial city allowed her to witness firsthand how environmental injustices affect the most vulnerable members of our society - including her Latino community. Her work in environmental justice and grassroots efforts led her to the University of California Berkeley. There she obtained a dual degree in Molecular Environmental Biology and Environmental Economics and Policy.

Through her work as an Associate Consultant and Project Manager in the consulting sector, she helped US 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. Prior to 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. She is excited to keep fighting the good fight, and increase the representation of BIPOC professionals in federal roles through the MANO Project.

 

Why she works for Hispanic Access…

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

 

In her spare time…

“I enjoy hiking, traveling, yoga, and gathering recipes from different members of my family!”

Her favorite book…

“My favorite book would be “Silent Spring” by Rachel Carson. Rachel’s ability to break down the complex relationship between chemicals in our environment and human health is fascinating. Picking up this book was the catalyst to my environmental career, so it holds a special place in my heart.”

A person she finds inspirational…

“My mother, Estela Barba.”
