Delfina DaglioDelfina Daglio

Diversity & Inclusion Partner at IBM

Delfina's first contact with diversity was as a little girl, when she joined an international organization of pen pals. She had “friends” all over the world with whom she exchanged letters and learnt about their countries and cultures…

When she finished high school, she decided to study Economics, with the goal of helping people from underdeveloped nations achieve a better quality of life. Her dream was to work for the United Nations.

In September 2003 she temporarily moved to Milan (Italy), where she was part of a large group of exchange students from all over the world. It was one of the best experiences in her life!! In 2004 she moved to Madrid, where she worked for a consulting agency and got the chance to travel all over Spain for work.

In 2008 she joined IBM as a Finance Business Controls leader for Spanish South America (a region comprised by 8 countries). Less than 3 years later, she finally landed her dream job: Diversity & Inclusion leader for the region. This role has allowed her to show the passion she has always had for people. She truly believes that when we are given the chance to bring their whole selves to work, they are more engaged and productive.

She is proud to be an IBMer and to share this passion and enthusiasm for inclusion inside and outside IBM. In 2011 she was selected to participate in the Corporate Service Corps program, and in March 2012 she travelled to Indore (India) to help develop a Marketing & Communications campaign for Urban Health Resource Center (UHRC), a not-for-profit organization that addresses health, nutrition and wellbeing of the disadvantaged urban dwellers. She spent 6 weeks in India, 4 working with UHRC (living with other 11 IBMers from 9 different countries), one travelling around India and the last one working as a volunteer in two homes run by the Missionaries of Charity.

She lives with her husband and her three small children in Buenos Aires (Argentina). She enjoys doing volunteer work, travelling and learning more about different cultures, reading and dancing.
