¡Viva la cultura! AlixPartners celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
October 15th marked the end of Hispanic Heritage Month, a celebration that honors the culture and traditions of people who trace their origins to the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. During this month, we celebrated Hispanic/Latino heritage through festivities that highlight the richness and history of our cultures, as well as the contributions to our communities and our roles at AlixPartners.
Festivities across the firm
Led by the Hispanics or Latinos of AlixPartners (HOLA) Employee Resource Group (ERG), we celebrated the influence that Hispanics have had on American history with events across several offices, including New York, Dallas, Houston, Washington, DC, Buenos Aires, Chicago, and London.
These events offered all AlixPartners employees an opportunity to learn more about Hispanic culture and the community’s many contributions.View more photos

HOLA is one of seven ERGs at AlixPartners, which we set up to foster a culture of collaboration and inclusion across the firm and play a key role in aligning our business strategy with our core values.
This celebration of diversity gives us all the opportunity to learn more about each other. We invite you to read and share the stories of a few of our colleagues who are members of the HOLA ERG:

Interactive Q&A panel with Global Kids
Accompanying the festivities of Hispanic Heritage Month, HOLA had the pleasure of hosting the Global Kids organization in an interactive Q&A panel session held during the New York office event.
As part of the panel session, attendees were informed of Global Kids’ social mission and the panelists shared with the group many inspirational experiences they've had as members of the organization.
