We asked some of our partners what they're doing to honor and celebrate #HispanicHeritageMonth 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, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year. Here's what they're doing, in their own words: https://bit.ly/2Y8cOwg Participating partners: Raytheon Technologies Sun Life U.S. Freddie Mac Riot Games 2U MongoDB BlackRock SoundCloud Relativity ServiceNow Moody's Analytics Uber Pacific Western Bank AAA Life at Expedia Group Bristol Myers Squibb Veracode NSA - National Security Agency PagerDuty Kensho Capco Okta Autodesk Nestlé CoStar Group Audible PwC Facebook Mindbody T.
