In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month this year, Credera proudly celebrated the richly diverse cultures, extensive histories, and the many contributions of the Hispanic and Latinx people through many fun and informative events.
“Hispanic Heritage Month is another opportunity to reflect in gratitude, connect over delicious meals, and celebrate the cultural richness and diverse stories within the LatinX community.” – Carolina Herrera (Senior Designer, Experience Design)
A team from our CredColor employee resource group hosted five different events focused on sharing employees’ personal journeys and highlighting multiple aspects of their Hispanic culture. Credera team members in attendance were invited to reflect upon their own experiences and ask questions.
“Hispanic Heritage Month allows me to share and celebrate with others the culture that shaped me into who I am today.” – Carolina Solis (Manager, Management Consulting)
Throughout the month, Credera employees of all backgrounds were able to connect and create fond memories through cooking together and sharing delicious Hispanic foods and drinks.
“Hispanic Heritage Month means celebrating our humble beginnings while also encouraging connectedness amongst all.” – Raquel Azcue (Consultant, Technology Solutions)
