Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation – And Firm

Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to reflect on the many cultural contributions, traditions and backgrounds of Hispanic and Latinx communities in America. The celebration, spanning from mid-September to mid-October, has been recognized in this country for more than 30 years.

This time frame is no accident – Sept. 15 marks the Independence Day of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, and the end of the recognition window marks Mexico’s Dia de la Raza, a holiday that celebrates the mixed indigenous and European heritage of Mexico.

BDO’s Multicultural Alliance has planned firmwide events for the occasion, including a webinar demonstrating the importance of inclusivity in the pursuit of financial success and a hybrid 5K in conjunction with Latinos Run.

The firm also tapped into the minds of some of our people who were willing to give us a glimpse of their lives as Hispanic or Latinx professionals in the accounting industry. Read below for their perspectives.
