Elena Valentine

Elena is an expert in leveraging video stories in the workplace. With the motto “you cannot be what you cannot see” Elena started filming jobs as a way to get young people excited about the world of work. 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 was recently named “HR Superhero of the Year” by DisruptHR Chicago. She is also the co-founder of Mezcla Media Collective, a non-profit that elevates women filmmakers of color. Next up for Elena and her team is the Humans@Work documentary and virtual film festival series that shares stories of people who find passion and meaning in their work.
