Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15th to October 15th and serves as a month to celebrate the history and diversity of Hispanic cultures. It invites us to remember all the contributions Hispanic, Latina/o/e/x, and Afro-Latina/o/e/x people made in the past and will continue to make in the future. This year’s theme, “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation,” encourages us to ensure that all voices are represented and welcomed to help build stronger communities and a stronger nation.   

This month at Cadent, we spoke with some of our Hispanic, Latinx, and Afro-Latinx colleagues to learn more about who they are, their experiences in and out of the workplace, and what Hispanic Heritage Month means to them. 

Tell us about your role at Cadent. 

I’m currently an Associate Media Buyer for the Broadcast Department. My role is to construct TV media buys and send schedules to stations. 

What does Hispanic Heritage Month mean to you? 

It’s a time to recognize and celebrate the many contributions, diverse cultures, and extensive histories of the Latino and Hispanic American communities.  

Where can we find you when you’re not at work?   

I’m either at the movie theater watching the latest film that came out or spending time at home with my husband and dog! 

Are there any mentors or experiences that have shaped you – either professionally or personally? 

Dr. A was the chair president of the Mass Communications department in my college. He always pushed me to be the best version of myself. 

What do you feel helps to foster a culture of inclusion? How have you seen those behaviors and practices successfully put into action?    

I feel that food is the perfect example because we use food to celebrate and for comfort. Different foods evoke memories and emotions. Food can bring people together, in a community and also in the workplace. 

Do you have any favorite movies, books, music, or other cultural inspirations from Hispanic creators? 

One Disney movie that I relate to is Coco. It speaks to my Mexican heritage and the traditions that we follow. 

What advice would you give to a younger colleague or a younger version of yourself? 

There’s a solution to every problem, try your best not to stress, and enjoy the moment!
