AAP BOARD MEMBER ARTHUR VALDEZ JR. INSPIRES TEAM MEMBERS DURING NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH FIRESIDE CHAT This year, we commemorated National Hispanic Heritage Month in a big way. The FUEGO Latino Team Member Network partnered with the DEI team to provide a series of noteworthy events through which team members could gain a deeper understanding of Hispanic heritage and learn how to better support the Hispanic community. This included an unforgettable fireside chat with Advance Board Member, Arthur Valdez Jr., who shared personal reflections on the role his Hispanic heritage played in shaping his career. Arthur talked about being the first in his family to attend college and that despite feeling a lack of belonging as one of the few Latino students at school, he developed the confidence he needed to move forward and advance his career. Arthur’s message to our team members was simple, “Never accept the premise that you’ve done enough. Be confident in your abilities and make the next step happen. Be willing to raise your hand and ask for more challenging assignments.” Arthur inspired our team members to think differently about their own career advancement and ways they can overcome potential barriers to their future success.
