Remaining true to herself in her career at Medtronic

Alma is proud to work at Medtronic because of its commitment to maintaining good citizenship and the personal worth of all its employees.

"These values allow me to do a job I am passionate about while remaining true to myself," she explains, "a proud Latina who doesn't have to edit herself to achieve success and inspire others to do the same." 

Joining Medtronic for personal reasons 

Meanwhile, Isabel's Medtronic journey started with her grandma from Mexico. She had a pacemaker and was a person with diabetes. 

This inspired Isabel to do an internship with Medtronic in Mexico City on a project to expand access to rural hospitals. 

"Eager to include the LatinX voice in product development and and the delivery of solutions, I joined teams in the Diabetes operating unit and now the Patient Management operating unit," she says.
