The Fuego ERG only has about 6 months after being formed but it feels like we’ve been around so much longer! This past quarter we had a very successful celebration of Latinx & Hispanic month, we put on 13 different events for our members & allies. We also worked with the social media team and swag team to coordinate 12 different Linkedln posts spotlighting our employees and over 60 different shipments of swag. With these efforts including different Slack channel events & AMA’s, in less than 6 months we were able to reach and exceed our OKR #1 of “creating a sense of belonging for Slack’s Latinx and Hispanic employees” due to the work of our core team of eight leads.
As a volunteer, I can whole heartedly say that none of it would be possible without the over the top effort & leadership of the co-leads: Frances Coronel & Monica Wilkinson. I’m so so grateful & thankful for their commitment to leading this ERG while still doing their full-time job duties. I’m so excited to continue to be a part of this group led by Frances! She deserves all the praise!
