Olga Mendez, human resources manager at Verizon Wireless and herself a survivor of an abusive relationship, gives Spanish-speaking women support and practical advice. Says Mendez, “Of all the opportunities I’ve had at Verizon Wireless, none have been more important than the chance to help other victims of domestic violence.”
