DLA Piper celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, several local D&I Committees hosted events celebrating the Hispanic diaspora and the ways Hispanic Americans have enriched our communities with their traditions and cultural practices.
Across the US, Hispanic Heritage Month is a chance to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, South America and Spain.
DLA Piper offices celebrated nationwide:
- On September 15, our Atlanta office hosted a luncheon of Colombian food.
- On September 29, our Chicago office held a cocktail hour celebration with a variety of Hispanic foods. There was also a challenge to match photos of landmarks to the country in which they are located. Those who matched them correctly were entered into a drawing for all of the centerpieces in the room.
- Our Silicon Valley office had a taco bar on September 23, and Houston hosted a breakfast on October 13.
