From September 15 to October 15 each year, Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of ancestors from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. 

At KnowBe4, we continue to build a diverse workplace culture where all Knowsters can be their authentic selves, including our Hispanic and Latinx communities, which is why we recently launched a new employee resource group, “VAMOS!”. In today’s blog, we learn more about VAMOS! and hear from several Knowsters on why they are excited about this new community.



The VAMOS! Mission

The mission of VAMOS! is to build a community where Knowsters can not only meet other Hispanics and Latinos but also where they can share their culture with others throughout the company. As KnowBe4’s newest employee resource group, VAMOS! will be focused on amplifying Hispanic and Latino voices throughout KnowBe4. 

Chelly Headshot

“By amplifying the voices of VAMOS!, we will help to facilitate a wide impact and influence in the communities where we operate. The vision for VAMOS! ERG is to cultivate a vocal, active, and engaged group of Knowsters that use their shared interests and heritage to connect and help each other excel professionally.”
-Chelly, Director of Global Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging


Why Knowsters Are Excited About The VAMOS! ERG

Sixto Headshot

“I'm most excited to celebrate our collective cultures! Since most Latinos and Hispanics have moved away from their communities in search of opportunity, the VAMOS! ERG brings these communities back together. This group gives us a space to share our music, recipes, and advice on how to grow and blossom without trimming our roots.”
-Sixto, Sales Development Representative

Giuliana Headshot

This is a tough question because I can't pinpoint just one thing. I love being in a space with people like myself. It helps foster embracing our culture!”
-Giuliana, Team Expansion Specialist and VAMOS! Community and Design Manager

Genells Headshot

“I am super excited to be part of a community at KnowBe4 that represents my ethnicity. Having this representation is important in a workspace, especially when it defines part of who I am. We are already planning some awesome initiatives to reach out to our local Hispanic Tampa Bay/Clearwater areas and help where we can. One of the ideas we have discussed is an English tutoring program. I am looking forward to seeing where this goes and how I can help our community both inside and outside of KnowBe4.”
-Genells, Product Community Manager

Rodrigo Headshot

“Firstly, I am excited to be able to connect with other Latinos and Latinas! In the first few months of this ERG, I have already connected with other Knowsters from my home country of Chile, which has been awesome! I am also excited about the opportunity to be part of a group that is giving back to our Latino/Hispanic communities. Being able to volunteer and show my kids what it means to ‘give back’ is a big deal to me.”
-Rodrigo, Core Support Technician

Alyssa Headshot

“As a proud Latina, I am so thrilled to be part of our VAMOS! ERG. I have already made great friends here at KnowBe4, but now I truly feel like I have my familia here too.”
-Alyssa, Global Talent Outreach Manager
