After some brief opening remarks by Lauren, I audience was in for a real treat as the evening's keynote address was delivered by Rick Nucci, CEO & Co-Founder of Guru. Rick did a deep dive into Guru's mission and principals, leaving no question that this is a company that cares deeply about diversity, inclusion and supporting it's employees.

Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.
