Graciela Tiscareño-Sato is the founder and Chief Creative Officer of Gracefully Global Group, LLC, a global marketing and communications excellence firm. She launched her ground-breaking book in 2011, titled “Latinnovating: Green American Jobs and the Latinos Creating Them,” the first book showcasing Latino-led innovation and entrepreneurship in the green economy. She’s a sought-after speaker on the topic of sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship at universities, business schools and community colleges.
Ms. Tiscareño-Sato is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, School of Environmental Design. Her global sustainability experience began while leading the Green Enterprise Initiative at Munich-headquartered Siemens Enterprise Networks. She helped enterprises understand the economic and environmental value of collaboration technologies. Once adopted, these solutions dramatically reduced corporations’ real estate needs, energy needs, employee commutes and their overall carbon footprints.
Graciela actively mentors students who need life, education and career roadmaps, which Latinnovating provides through childhood-to-innovation case studies. Her thought leadership pieces have published in the U.S. and Europe including Environmental Leader, Hispanic MBA, Communications News and many others.
Graciela earned a Master degree in International Management from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington while flying on active duty with the U.S. Air Force. In November 2010, she was honored by LATINA Style Magazine, receiving “Entrepreneur of the Year” honors at the Anna Maria Arias Memorial Business Fund Gala in Washington D.C. She is a key organizer of the Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit held annually at Stanford University. She lives in the San Francisco east bay with her husband and three eco-conscious children.
