Michelle Gutierrez-Vo

For Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today's profile is Michelle Gutierrez-Vo of National Nurses United (NNU).

Michelle Gutierrez-Vo, a registered nurse at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fremont, California, is a longtime RN leader, an inspiring mentor to Filipina and other AAPI nurses, and a member of the board of directors of the California Nurses Association, an affiliate of National Nurses United. She was also a member of the bargaining team that recently won a historic four-year contract for 21,000 Kaiser Permanente nurses in Northern California, including the creation of a new regional Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
