JSpire Recruiting celebrates Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month as Janice Shisler, Chief Executive Officer, is proud to represent the community as a Hispanic Executive and Entrepreneurial Leader within the financial services recruitment industry.
Hispanic Heritage Week was initially started by Congress in 1968 and was lengthened into a month-long celebration in 1988. The dates September 15th through October 15th are unique due to several national independence days occurring in Latin American countries over this time period.
Hispanic and Latinx small-business owners are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. According to a study from Stanford University, the number of Latinx business owners grew 34% over the past ten years.
During this month, we honor the cultures and recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans. Thank you to our colleagues, clients, candidates, and partners within this community who help influence and inspire growth in our industry and beyond!
