What you will learn:

Every year, we celebrate the culture and contributions of Latinos / Latinx / Hispanics in the United States during National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15). It’s a nationwide moment to not only recognize the myriad of ways Latinos have positively impacted this country, but to also learn history and heritage.

There are 62 million people in the United States who identify as Latino/Latinx/Hispanic with connections to more than 30 countries in Latin America. From the arts and science to government, business, sports and entertainment, Latinos touch all corners of this country and in more languages than one. In this Elective, we will both celebrate and learn Latino heritage and history with fiesta and facts.
Participants will walk away with:
  • Deeper understanding of why and how we celebrate this Hispanic Heritage Month
  • Clarity on the nuances of the Latino/Latinx/Hispanic culture and identity
  • A brief understanding of the historical context of Latin America
  • Tips on how to be a better ally to the community
This Elective is ideal for leaders and contributors of all levels who are curious and seek to deepen their understanding of Latino heritage and culture.
