Have you ever wondered why some people get noticed and others don't? Start your new year off right with some strategies for increasing your presence. During this episode of the Employee Engagement Corner, Image Expert, Ron Rapatalo, offers some helpful tips for building a winning image and how to afford it.
Ron Rapatalo leads and supports hiring searches for leadership roles for school districts, charter schools and nonprofits independently and in partnership with firms including the Offor Walker Group. As a product of NYC public schools, he saw the power of education and leadership to change his life and career trajectory. Ron also does career coaching and men’s personal styling. As a career coach, he gives career advice on how to navigate career transitions and present oneself from networking to interviewing. Ron’s fifth grade teacher, Mr. Seluga was his most memorable coach for telling Ron he could choose ANY career he wanted. As a men’s personal stylist through J.Hilburn, Ron brings the tailor to a man’s home or workplace and provides wardrobe recommendations that accentuate a man’s personal style. He believes that a well-dressed man is a more confident man.
Outside of work, he does kickboxing and yoga. He has been married for five years and has a beautiful (almost) two year old daughter, Sofia. In his volunteer activities, he's active in the NYU Alumni Association, iMentor, React to Film, and Latinas on the Verge of Excellence (L.O.V.E.)

Fresh sweet berries are nature’s candy, or so we like to think. But there’s nothing natural about the inhumane treatment experienced by the farmworkers responsible for bringing those berries to your table.
Join us for a conversation with farmworker and union activist Alfredo “Lelo” Juárez, and community organizer with Community to Community Development and Move to Amend board member Edgar Franks on the fight to expand democracy and procure human rights for migrant farmworkers, as we bring into focus the first farmworkers' union, Familias Unidas por la Justicia, and the ongoing boycott of berry products from corporate agribusiness, Sakuma Brothers Farms and Driscoll's.
