Diversity & Inclusion

Organizations should foster diverse, inclusive, safe, and supportive environments where all employees can thrive irrespective of gender, nationality, ethnicity, age, religion, or sexual orientation; this has been a discussion for decades, but action is now imperative."

— Bismarck Lepe, CEO & Founder of Wizeline

D&I is threaded throughout Wizeline’s DNA and values

Wizeline’s DNA reflects the story of our founder

As the immigrant son of Mexican migrant workers, Bismarck was taught the value of education, that everything is possible, and respect for all. He attended Stanford and was an early employee of Google.

He returned to Mexico to build companies that reflect Silicon Valley ideals in order to provide opportunities for local talent to build meaningful careers.

By connecting with the local community and investing in initiatives focused on education, innovation and entrepreneurship, Bismarck built a robust local technology ecosystem.

Wizeline’s expansive growth can be attributed to a respect for talent and the empowerment to innovate and take action that is built into our culture.
