State of Remote Webinar


Backed by Owl Labs and Global Workplace Analytics

In Nov. 2022 Miranda served as a moderator at the State of Remote Work Webinar.

 

Each year, for the last six years Owl Labs, an award-winning telecommunications startup produces an annual State of Remote Work Report that gathers data about remote, hybrid and in-person work experiences. 

 

At the webinar, Miranda led a panel discussion that dove deep into the report’s data which displayed insights on the pros/cons of hybrid/remote work, proximity bias and what employers can do next to better serve their employees.

MSNBC'S The Cross Connection

In Oct. 2021, Miranda was invited to speak on MSNBC'S The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross to discuss Hispanic/Latinx enrollment at Historically Black Colleges live to roughly 1.2 million viewers.

 

In this conversation, she spoke about her decision to enroll at Clark Atlanta University and her identity as a Puerto Rican with African, Indigenous and Spaniard ancestry.

HBCUs were built on the radical premise of ensuring black Americans access to institutions of higher learning at a time when there were no other options.

 

But despite their radical beginnings, HBCUs are frequently socially conservative, focusing on black radicalization through the lens of cis-gender heterosexual men at the expense of women and the LGBTQ+ community.

The cannabis industry and the contemporary prison-industrial complex were built on the backs of men like Nunez and Perez.

 

But the opportunity to work in the industry legally is out of reach for them—and the 60% of Illinois felons who were convicted of nonviolent drug crimes. Now that the business is booming, men like Nunez and Perez—unseen and criminalized pioneers of the industry—can’t reap the benefits.

This theme of respect and remembrance in The Ballad of Chalino Sánchez resonated heavily with me. While listening to the episodes, I thought of legends in my hood and honestly, my ancestors.

 

There isn’t one generation in my family that hasn’t fallen victim to poverty and gang violence. While their gang activity surpassed them in death, their legacies as fearless providers and protectors lived on through family stories.
