Esperanza: A Celebration Of Hispanic Heritage And Hope
At Blackbaud, we celebrate the diversity of our employees across the company and within our communities. September 15–October 15, we're proud to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month! Keep reading to learn more.
This is a special time to recognize many Latinx and Hispanic heritages, communities, and the unique people who have made remarkable impacts for the culture—in the U.S. and around the world. As we spend time uplifting Latinx and Hispanic stories of bravery and perseverance, we are also committed to learning more about the people, the heritage, and the places that have collectively created a rich and vibrant past that we can observe together as a global company.
From now through October 15, we will celebrate the contributions and accomplishments from Latinx and Hispanic communities with various activities, including employee-led events like a virtual Latin Cuisine Tour! It’s a virtual tour that explores the taste of a variety of Latin dishes—all made from the hearts and homes of Blackbaud employees with ties or roots to Latinx and Hispanic culture. ¡Delicioso!
Employees are also invited to engage in a virtual volunteer activity that focus’ on a partnership with a nonprofit organization whose mission involves serving Latinx and Hispanic communities.
At Blackbaud, we celebrate the diversity of our employees across the company and within our communities. Do you celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month?
