UB has a passion for helping #PEOPLEMATTER. He has a clear perspective of the good, bad and ugly of how companies are being built. Surviving workplace violence and his Latino background define that perspective. As such, he is an advocate for people safety and happiness. He thrives in helping people overcome internal obstacles to be better humans to themselves and others.
As an advocate he helps companies attract, hire and develop more inclusive and diverse talent. He speaks about the future of work and building inclusive companies. Through his work as Founder and CEO of Breaking the Bias, he strives to help people understand their own biases and build a Code of Curiosity.
He is currently working with a team of DEI&B thought leaders and practitioners to open the world’s first Inclusion Lab in downtown Denver. His strategy is to build a “collective impact” team of doers in the diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging space who can build, strategize and impact business and the community at large, together, and who can be a resource to DEI&B leaders and enthusiasts who have little support to make their own impact.
