participating as a workshop presenter and donating copies of Latinnovating: Green American
Jobs and the Latinos Creating Them to our 20 Southern California high school teams during the
Puente 9th Grade Leadership Conference at the USC campus on Saturday, January 21, 2012.
Your book, Latinnovating, opened the eyes of our 900 Puentistas to expand their knowledge of
jobs within the green economy. The stories within Latinnovating are inspiring, each with their
unique testimonial of personal and professional commitment to environment preservation, waste
management, green education and social activism.
We also appreciate your time as a workshop presenter during the conference. Your workshop
reflected themes of our conference â€“ including leadership and social activism. For our 9th Grade
Puentistas, Latinnovating also showcased exemplary Latino leaders and innovators with whom
dedicate their careers to a more green economy. We hope these leaders excite our students and
inspire them to participate within the movement.
The Puente Project is proud to acknowledge your contributions to inspire our Puentistas. We
look forward to working with you again in the near future."

"Graciela, the kids are still talking about your visit. One student went home with her book and made her mom sit down to look at it with her as soon as she walked in the door. We really appreciate the time you took to meet and talk to our students. My only regret is that we couldnâ€™t get you to everyone in the school."
â€”Ray Leonard, science teacher, Glasgow Middle School

Featured Earth Week speaker
â€śEntrepreneurial Successes in the Green Economy"
â€śGraciela TiscareĂ±o-Sato is an interdisciplinary thinker marrying green innovations to environmental issues of the day. While she provides important and real life examples in those she has interviewed, she is also a living example of innovation herself. Gracielaâ€™s overarching theme is based on the importance of the social network, how it contributes to the historical biography of individual development and the shaping of the Self (in a social psychological sense).â€ť
â€”Armando Arias, Founding Director, Street Smart Think Tank a Division of Solution Strategies, Inc."Graciela came to CSU-Monterey Bay to speak during Earth Week. She is an outstanding, knowledgeable and highly motivational speaker. She engaged and motivated many of the students in the audience, and the faculty members as well. She affected this response by the power of her speaking, attention, open-mindedness and energetic presence. After hearing the case studies she shared, I purchased several copies of Latinnovating. I will share with people for whom I know it will make a difference. One of the many things that I appreciated about her presentation was her demonstration of how she herself 'walks the talk' by taking a huge financial and marketing risk in publishing her book in a manner that will reduce its carbon footprint. She is a perfect example of those innovators of whom she writes and of whom many people will look to as a role model."

Business Leadership Week, Distinguished Lecturer
â€śEntrepreneurial Successes in the Green Economy: Role Models and Innovations from the Latino Communityâ€ť
From Event Organizer: â€śYou were exactly what we were hoping for in a distinguished lecturer and what you shared with the students exceeded our expectations! I know the students learned a lot of valuable lessons through your interactive presentation and remarkable stories about sustainable businesses started by Latinos. It was very special to have you speak about your book, the Latino community and what a difference these business owners have made in our world. It is an area of business that should have more attention. I am glad you could come speak to the students and the San Marcos community to help open their eyes to something new and exciting.â€ť
â€”Arin Ely, Student Development Coordinator & Academic Advisor
McCoy College of Business Administration, Texas State University-San Marcos
From Career Advisor: "Your lecture was both inspiring and entertaining. What I loved most about the stories that you chose to share was the incredible breadth of experiences and knowledge of these innovative successes. Frequently, there isn't one set path that an individual can take, and your stories appropriately illustrate different career journeys (including your own). Thank you so much for your work, and I wish you continued success."

Hosted by National Society of Hispanic MBAs, Washington D.C. chapter; sponsored by SunTrust and the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
Moderated a panel entitled â€śLatinos Shaping the Green Economyâ€ť
From Event Organizer: â€śModerating a panel means knowing how to keep the attendeesâ€™ interest, excitement, and expectations of the event, as well as enabling the panelists to share their knowledge. You can only do this by being knowledgeable of the topic and taking the time to know each of the panelists. Doing all of this is challenging given the time constraints and the breadth of area to be covered. At the National Society of Hispanic MBAs Washington D.C. chapter event called "Latinos Shaping the Green Economy," Graciela Tiscareno-Sato was able to wonderfully meet everybody's expectations. The attendees, panelists, sponsors and our chapter board were very pleased at the end of the event. I want to thank Graciela for doing an excellent job of moderating. I highly recommend her to be in future events and look forward to working with her again.â€ť
