Elena Valentine has made it her mission to leverage film stories in the workplace to help people find meaning in their work. With the motto “you cannot be what you cannot see,” Elena started filming jobs as a way to get young people excited about careers. Since then, her team at Skill Scout has since built a world-class media company. Their films have helped clients like Nike and American Airlines engage candidates and employees alike.

She is also the co-founder of Mezcla Media Collective, a non-profit that elevates women and non-binary filmmakers of color. Elena's particularly excited about Skill Scout's latest project, the Humans@Work documentary and virtual film festival series that shares stories of people who find passion and meaning in their work.
