“Most people know about the Latino population in terms of statistics,” says T-Mobile External Diversity and Inclusion Council member Gilbert Casellas. “There are 58 million of us, with a GDP that’s equivalent to $2.3 trillion, and if we were a separate country we would be the eighth largest country in the world. Fortunately, we’re part of this great country and making it even greater.”
From September 15 - October 15, the United States celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month to recognize the wealth of contributions Hispanic Americans have made to American history and culture. And while we continue to practice social distancing for the health and safety of our employees, it has never been more important to remain connected.
My parents immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico and moved to California, where I was born. They eventually settled in Brooklyn, New York, where they worked endless hours doing labor jobs to support me and my two younger sisters as we attended school. My parents may not have been fortunate enough to have a full education but they modeled the value of hard work and dedication to their family, as they wanted us to have all we needed for a successful future. Seeing how hard my parents worked I decided at young age that their efforts will not go to waste.
“The more representation we have, the stronger we are as a community.”
Every year from September 15 to October 15, National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the cultures, histories and accomplishments of American citizens whose ancestors come from Central and South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, and Spain.

If the value of all goods and services produced by the Latino community in the U.S. were a standalone economy, it would be the 7th largest in the world. Today, there are 4.37 million Hispanic-owned businesses in the U.S., which contribute more than $700 billion to the economy annually, according to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. These businesses have provided almost 2.7 million jobs to U.S. workers.
