Celebrating Intersectionality & Allyship: Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month, annually recognized from September 15 to October 15, is a time to celebrate the influence and cultures of those from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The month consists of food and music festivals, community functions, art exhibits and much more to create a broader cultural awareness of the contributions from the American Latino community and various independence days taking place in September.
Samsung continued the celebration with the help of UNIDOS, the company’s Hispanic & Latino Employee Resource Group, which launched earlier this year. With the mission of empowering the community and its allies within our organization and promoting employee development and an understanding of multicultural traditions, UNIDOS hosted internal discussions and shared some of their favorite recipes and playlists. These fun and engaging activities included educational conversations surrounding intersectionality, allyship, and ways to grow Hispanic and Latino talent within the company.
