As a Marketing Operations Specialist, Alexis Mencos manages and optimizes processes, systems, and technologies to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and overall performance of Carrot’s marketing initiatives.
In addition to her role on the Marketing team, Alexis is also a member of Las Zanahorias, Carrot’s employee community group (ECG) for Latinx Carrots.
We sat down to learn more about her experiences here at Carrot.
When did you join Carrot?
I joined Carrot in June 2022.
Why did you join Carrot?
I joined Carrot because it was an amazing opportunity to grow my career in the Marketing space. It was extremely important for me to work in an environment that is mission-based, and as a Stage 4 Cancer survivor, fertility care for all is something that hits close to home for me. I see firsthand the importance of lifelong fertility healthcare support and the positive impact these benefits can have on anyone people. I knew that my personal experience and passion would allow me to be an asset to the Marketing Operations team.
How would you describe Carrot’s culture?
Carrot’s culture is inclusive and motivating. Everyone I have had the pleasure of working with is dedicated to our mission and truly cares about each other’s growth. The genuine collaboration really brings out the best in one another. I always feel completely supported by my team, my managers, and everyone I work with.
Tell us about Las Zanahorias, Carrot’s Latinx employee community group (ECG). Can you share any highlights you’ve experienced with the group?
Las Zanahorias advocates for the Latinx community and promotes Latinx culture, both here at Carrot and externally. We do this by fostering an inclusive, safe space for social connectivity, learning, and collective action. Some highlights I have experienced are hosting author Reyna Grande and Dr. Merary Simeon & Alisa Manjarrez, the hosts of What Rules?! Podcast for a DEI Speaker event.
What are some initiatives Las Zanahorias have done/plan to do?
We have an exciting DEI speaker event coming up in September where we will be hosting Sandra Velasquez, CEO and founder of Nopalera, a Mexican botanical bath and body brand sold in Nordstrom, Credo Beauty, Free People, and over 400 independent retailers nationwide. In 2023, Sandra appeared on Shark Tank, where she infamously turned down two offers, rallying the Latino community to stand in their worth.
Why is it important for you to be part of an ECG at Carrot?
By being a part of multiple ECGs at Carrot, I have been able to form relationships with my colleagues that I wouldn’t find myself working with on a daily basis. It allows me to form strong connections in a fully remote environment. I have also invested in my own career growth by taking on leadership positions within ECGs and leading speaking engagements that we host.
