Malaika Serrano

I’m passionate about driving systemic changes to increase access and opportunities for historically marginalized communities.

Malaika Marable Serrano is the VP for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) at Guild and leads the integration of DEI principles and best practices across the organization. Most recently, she served as the inaugural Head of DEI at WorldStrides and has served in a number of leadership and faculty roles in academic and non-profit spaces. Living abroad in Latin America and Australia greatly shaped her ability to foster productive, engaging, and culturally responsive learning environments. Malaika received her MA in Higher Education Administration from the University of Maryland and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at the Centre for Higher Education Internationalisation (CHEI), Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, Italy. She finds joy in volunteering with women’s leadership groups, regularly presents at conferences, and has published numerous DEI-related articles and book chapters.
