Conversations Meant to Inspire Change and Movement

Comcast Newsmakers will also release seven interviews with leaders committed to championing Hispanic communities. Throughout the month, Comcast Newsmakers will celebrate the unique contributions of Hispanic communities and highlight advancements to challenges facing Hispanic Americans across business, health care, technology, and more.

As part of our ongoing commitment to amplify diverse and underrepresented voices, our Latino Destination and the Black Experience on Xfinity Channel will be the exclusive home of a new docuseries, Founding in Color, which premiered on September 9. Made in collaboration with Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT LabsFounding in Color features the unique stories of nine Black and Latino entrepreneurs in the tech and entertainment industries who have partnered with Comcast either through our accelerator programs or Comcast RISE.


Programs Designed to Support Latino Entrepreneurs

Our support of the Hispanic and Latino community goes beyond our programming and content. Through programs such as Comcast RISE, we are committed to supporting Hispanic-owned small businesses, especially at a time when, according to a recent Goldman Sachs survey, 44% of U.S. small businesses have less than three months of cash reserves.

NBCUniversal and Telemundo will be joining forces with the launch of the “Come With Us” campaign, which will highlight the entire NBCUniversal portfolio and celebrate Hispanics’ spirit of progression, and highlight leaders who have broken boundaries past and present. Telemundo and NBCUniversal platforms will be featuring special programming throughout the month, including “Our Latino Identity,” a streaming special featuring interviews on the topic of Latino identity, and “The Changing Latino Landscape,” an NBC News cross-platform project anchored by interactive digital elements showing where Latinos are living now across the U.S. and how communities have changed over time.

At the heart of everything we do is our employees, and our celebration wouldn’t be complete without the enriching and enlightening programming run by Unidos, our Hispanic- and Latino-focused Employee Resource Group. Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, Unidos will be hosting a three-part educational series on Latino identity, with the purpose of educating our employees on the rich and diverse culture within the community.

This year and every year we are proud to recognize and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, and we will continue to empower and support our employees, audiences, and the communities we serve.
