IT’s Toledano Is Role Model for Latina Student in Nissan Video


After appearing in a video for Nissan’s diversity campaign last year, Soledad Toledano of the Lab’s IT Division suggested to the car company’s creative team the need to feature more women in STEM fields.

In the video Toledano shares with Hernandez her experiences as a woman working in technology, and surprises Hernandez with a powerful image of her possible future in cybersecurity.
