This year has been one of many challenges. Collectively we have all been affected by the pandemic and witnessed social and political unrest. In spite of all of the challenges, it's still important for us to remember and express all that we are thankful for.

At Folsom Labs, we're incredibly thankful for our customers who are the engine behind bringing clean, sustainable solar energy to our world. We'd like to also share with you what the Folsom Labs team members are thankful for this year:

"I am thankful for the kindness and resilience of our team. We've all pulled together to support each other while we transition to remote work, and while we all try to grapple with social (in)justice issues. Also, I'm impressed at how well our customers have transitioned to a world of social distancing and remote operations. Even though there is still a lot of uncertainty around how COVID will evolve from here, there is no doubt that the solar industry will survive and even thrive."

-Paul Grana, CRO

"I am thankful for my family, our health and that post-election we have a shot at getting federal support for policies to address climate change."

- Clint Talbert, VPE

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year.
