How Latinx Dropboxers use their heritage to find power in their communities and at work

This year for Latinx Heritage Month, instead of recruiting lots of external speakers to help us celebrate and learn, we turned our focus inward to find the impactful stories already within our company. Dropbox Senior Software Engineer and podcast co-host Jose Rodriguez Salinas hosted a fireside chat with five panelists who shared their journeys and the unique perspectives that their heritage has given them in life, at work, and beyond.

When you think of Latinx Heritage Month, what does it mean to you?

How do your roots influence your professional life?

How has your community influenced your life lens?

Have you had any experiences with mixing communities that you’d like to share?

What advice would you give to the next generation of Latinx people coming into our tech community?

Even after Latinx Heritage Month is over, we support Latinx Dropboxers and Dropboxers of all backgrounds year round through our ERGs. You can learn more about them here.
