Celebrating Hispanic and Latinx History Month at Spin

Celebrating Hispanic and Latinx History Month at Spin

Spin Spotlight: Meet the Spin en español Employee Network

Each year, Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month takes place from September 15 to October 15 to recognize and celebrate the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

This year at Spin, we’re celebrating by giving our Spin en español Employee Network — an employee resource group dedicated to building community and connection — a platform to share their stories.

We spoke with members of the network to discuss the impact of their heritage on their careers, their favorite local businesses and restaurants, and the causes and issues they care about most.

Without further ado, meet the Spin en español Employee Network:

What are you most proud of about your heritage?

“I’m most proud of the contributions Puerto Ricans have made to Latin culture through music. From reggaeton to salsa, we keep the world moving despacito.” — Jean Carlos de Jesus, Senior Operations Manager
“I’m proud that I will always carry my heritage with me and it’s part of my DNA. I’m proud of how we’re a hardworking culture.” — Vivian Myrtetus, Government Partnerships Manager East

How has your heritage impacted your career?

“Being a minority in the tech world is not always easy, and I have faced many challenges because of my heritage. However, I use what I’ve learned from those challenges to allow me to help others who may be struggling in the tech world the same way I did.” — Luis Roberto Gomez, Workforce Operations Manager
“My heritage has taught me to work hard, never stop growing, and set ambitious goals. Even during difficult times, echa pa’lante.” — Jean Carlos de Jesus, Senior Operations Manager

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
