DoorDash celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month 2023

September 13, 2023


Raj Prashad

As part of our intentional approach to engaging people of all backgrounds while fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion, we’re celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month alongside our Unidos@ Employee Resource Group. 

Through our company culture, community efforts, and engagement with merchants, we support and empower Hispanic and Latin merchants and the communities we serve throughout the year. 

Beginning September 15 through October 15, we’re hosting a series of virtual and in-person events to celebrate the vibrant cultures and enduring contributions from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central & South America. 

We’ll kick off the month of inclusive programming with a fireside chat alongside the founder of I<3Chamoy Annie Leah, followed by a cooking session with Omi Hopper, a home cook turned 'Next Level Chef' and a social media influencer. Our restaurant partners Sergios, Sanguich, and SuViche will join us for an engaging panel discussion, followed by a traditional Loteria game hosted by Drag Queen, Gubsy Daisy, and Charles Schwab will host a financial literacy discussion. 

Across two days, we’ll also be joined by innovative Hispanic leaders across tech, retail, and e-commerce. In partnership with our Chief People Officer and the Unidos@ executive sponsor, Mariana Garavaglia, our panelists will come together through a series of fireside chats to share how they’ve navigated and charted career paths, built strong mentor relationships, and more.

Speakers will include:

- Mariana Garavaglia, our Chief People Officer and Unidos@ executive sponsor
- Anna Fabrega, Chief Executive Officer at Local Bounti
- Ariel Dos Santos, VP of Product at Redfin
- Cris Rivera, Regional President at Cresco Labs
- Andres Gonzalez, VP of eCommerce Operations at Walmart
- Jerry Guerrero, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Roku
- Andrea Perez, SVP Global Marketing - Product, Brand and Services at Sony 

To close out the month, our Mexico City office will host dance lessons to experience the rhythm and grace of being Hispanic. 

As we celebrate NHHM year-round, our Learning and Development team at DoorDash will continue to empower and encourage learning opportunities, including sessions around how to succeed as a Latina in a global work environment, how to develop your authentic self, and more.

Through our company culture, community efforts, and engagement with merchants, we’ll continue to support and empower Hispanic and Latin merchants, as well as the communities we serve.

Our efforts to create a workplace where everyone feels welcomed, supported, and valued is one of the reasons we were recently recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces 2023 by Newsweek.
