Hispanic Heritage Month at Veris Insights
Yesterday, we brought our team together for a Lunch and Learn to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.
Angie Bergner and Mer Fagliano opened the session by walking through the history and contemporary context around Hispanic Heritage Month. They shared stories about their families and upbringings and how these have shaped them as people.
Angie, Mer, Fernando Cervera, and Jacynta Smith also participated in a panel discussion to share more about their identities and what Hispanic Heritage Month means to them. The panelists then discussed what they wish people knew about being Hispanic/Latinx in the workplace.
Thank you Angie, Mer, Fernando, and Jacynta for sharing your stories. We are grateful for the opportunity to learn from you about your heritage and culture.
