What is Hispanic Heritage Month? 🤔

Signed into law way back in 1968, National Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate and honor both Latin American and Hispanic cultures, as well as the contributions, influences, and achievements the Latin American and Hispanic community has made to the United States. 

When is Hispanic Heritage Month? 📅

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15th to October 15th. These dates were chosen to align with the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence, which ultimately freed Mexico and Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua from Spanish rule. Pretty fun fact, right? 

Why you should celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work 🙌

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at work is important for several reasons:

  • It provides an opportunity to recognize and honor the contributions, achievements, and rich cultural heritage of Hispanic and Latino populations. By acknowledging their backgrounds and cultures, you create a more inclusive and supportive work environment that values diversity.
  • Celebrating Hispanic culture fosters cultural awareness and education among all employees. It allows for the sharing of traditions, customs, and experiences, promoting understanding and respect.
  • Celebrating this month at work showcases your organization's commitment to diversity and inclusion, which can enhance employee morale, engagement, and retention. It sends a powerful message that all employees are valued and their unique backgrounds are embraced.
