Name: Tonette Slaviero

Company: The silicon valley organization

Title: Sr. Public Policy & Workforce Development Manager / Work Experience Educator 

How long have you been a part of The SVO?

Almost a year

Why did you choose to work at The SVO? What about what you do keeps you here?

I enjoy connecting businesses with high school students in order to offer them work-based learning opportunities. 

What was your first job like?

My first job was in retail sales which led to merchandising manager and eventually Human Resource Manager. I loved helping my customers make wise buying decisions and  helping my employees succeed with their sales goals and career advancement. 

Describe your current job.

In my current position as Campbell Union High School District Liaison at The SVO I assist our other three school district liaisons in making work-based learning available to as many of our students as possible.

What has been a career high point for you thus far?

Since I have been teaching for 30 years, my biggest career high has been taking some of my students to DECA competitions, watching them get excited when they won, and now staying connected with them on Facebook to follow how their lives have evolved over the years. 

What words of advice can you share for other professional women working in the Silicon Valley?

Remember that you (we all) have a special gift to share with the world. Don't withhold it; share it with others. 

On August 26, 2017, Women‚Äôs Equality Day is celebrated across the nation. To celebrate, The SVO is highlighting some of the women who choose to make their mark in Silicon Valley business - SVO members & SVO staff - through the SVO Women series.

COVID-19 Nonprofit Resources
Wondering how you can help during this time? Social distancing doesn't mean social isolation. We still need to support the nonprofits in our region who are continuing to provide critical services to the people of our community day and night—ensuring our most vulnerable populations are being housed, fed and cared for. However, they could really use our help in a number of ways: donating extra supplies, offering your time as a volunteer or through any generous donations in order to sustain themselves.
