SIETAR USA always strives to increase membership outreach and diversity. This month we'd like to reach out to the Latino communities and invite our members to introduce SIETAR USA to potential new members. Please email names of those you feel could benefit from being part of the SIETAR family: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In September the USA celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month. From Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 we will recognize the history, culture and contributions of Latino Americans(*). Let us use this time to identify, embrace, collaborate with, learn from our fellow Latino (*) SIETARians and interculturalists. Maybe learn or practice Spanish, visit art galleries, listen to and/or sing Latinos tunes, taste Latin food or simply reach out and touch our Latino community showing how grateful we are for the diversity it contributes to our country and our lives. My own local group, SIETAR Florida, will host a webinar to celebrate Back to School 2016 and Hispanic Heritage Month. The topic will be "International Education and Bilingualism." To attend, be considered a panelist or for general information on this or other SIETAR Florida
events, email email@example.com
Let's dare having those important yet difficult conversations of immigration, citizenship by birth right, second and third generation Latinos challenges vs advantages of the Latino community.
Please take part of our social media post and comment on upcoming questions and trivia honoring Hispanic Heritage Month.
The Early Bird pricing ends on October 1.

A Survey to Help

The survey results will illuminate differences in ethical decision-making across diversity dimensions, specifically in the workplace. We wish to gather data from all around the world, so please share this invitation and link to take the survey. It will only take about 15-20 minutes to complete. We will post findings on the PMI website once we have sufficient data analyzed.
