 Junto TW & FB2.jpg

Juntos, our Hispanic/Latino ERG, had a successful 2018 focused on community impact, leadership, and fellowship. Some of the most prominent events included the Lideres Fellowship, Latina Emprendedora Conference, Hispanic Heritage Month, and the HITEC Leadership Summits.   

Lideres Fellowship event at the HPE Aruba HQ in May. The Lideres Youth Fellowship, a Yacanex initiative, is a 7-month after school course that introduces Latino students to tech, business, career exploration, and more. Our HPE event provided participants with a better sense of what it’s like to work for a leading tech company. Notable executives visited the group, including HPE Chief Legal Counsel, Willie Hernandez and Aruba’s President, Keerti Melkote. Click here to read the full article on their experience!
