Tell us about yourself?
CS: I am Panamanian. I am a gay man, married to a wonderful man, and a proud cat and dog Dad. I enjoy travelling to new places, playing board games and reading mystery books. I love learning about breakthroughs in astronomy and am a Credit Analyst, covering TMT and FinTech supporting the west coast team.
Why did you join the SC Pride Committee?
CS: I joined because I wanted to get to know my fellow bankers who are also part of the LGBTQ+ community. I also wanted to share the joy I feel of living my truth with the rest of the Bank, so it was a great place to start.
How did the culture at Standard Chartered empower you to live your truth and bring your whole self to work?
CS: Since arriving at the Bank, I have felt accepted for who I am – I’ve never felt awkward because of who I love. People I have interacted with in the Bank genuinely don’t care about it, which in turn, makes me not think about it while at work, allowing me to relax and just be me.
