Speaker Profile

Mariana Padias

Hi! I have the honor of being part of the United Steelworkers' organizing department, working to grow our union and strengthen the labor movement in our country. My passion is helping workers empower themselves and have a voice in their workplaces because I think it is one of the most effective ways people can have a substantial and sustainable impact on their lives. I started out as an organizer, eventually went to law school, and practiced as in-house counsel for the USW for almost a decade before returning to organizing. I look forward to helping you discover how you can make change in your workplace in this training.
