Hispanic Heritage Month Past Campaigns

At ACM, our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity is fundamental to our mission. Awareness months are a time dedicated to reflection, education, and engagement to embrace the diversity within the ACM community. This archival webpage documents past ACM social media campaigns for Hispanic Heritage Month (October 15 to November 15). Our social media campaigns work to honor the accomplishments of Hispanic and Latin computing professionals and educate others about their impact on the computing world. 

Hispanic Heritage Month 2023 - "Communities Matter"

Why do communities matter? Why should you spend time and energy on fostering a community in your field? In recent years, many initiatives have been launched aimed at empowering underrepresented groups by creating communities. To celebrate Hispanic-Latino Heritage Month (Sept. 15 - Oct. 15, 2023), the ACM DEI Council invited moderator Patti Ordóñez, Daniel Acuña, Stephanie Ludi, and Carlos R. Rivero to share their journeys as computing professionals, acknowledge their influences, and discuss the benefits and challenges of building alliances in the panel "Communities Matter: Celebrating Hispanic-Latino Alliances in Computing."

ACM Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month, Sept. 15 - Oct. 15, 2022

Diversity in computing enriches our understanding of the field as well as the people working in it. During Hispanic Heritage Month this year, we are spotlighting several Hispanic computing professionals, whose academic excellence, engineering accomplishments, and long-term efforts to diversify the field make them inspiring role models for future generations of students, researchers, and practitioners. We encourage you to post about the Hispanic computing professionals who have inspired you using the hashtags #HispanicHeritageMonth and #HHM2022.
