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 are committed to fostering a workplace culture that embraces diversity and inclusion, where all Knowsters can thrive. In today's blog, we hear from several Knowsters on why they are passionate about the "VAMOS!" employee resource group and how it contributes to creating a fun and welcoming workplace.
“Before starting my role at KnowBe4, I knew this was somewhere I wanted to be not only because of how much diversity is valued but also because I deeply appreciated the opportunity to connect and celebrate my heritage with other members of the Hispanic community through VAMOS! ERG. This has been somewhere that we can connect on shared experiences and support each other in big ways that make a difference. I love being part of this community and all the fun, support, and inclusion it provides..”

As someone with Cuban and Guatemalan roots, I take immense pride in celebrating my mixed heritage. It is a beautiful blend of cultures."
