NORRISTOWN, PA — Montgomery County is inviting the public to hear from Norman Bristol Colón, Pennsylvania’s Chief Diversity Officer, to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and the transformative impact that Hispanic and Latinx people have had in the U.S.
The free virtual talk, which will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 12 p.m. via Zoom, will delve into the current changing demographics of America and the resulting opportunities in our communities and in the workplace.
Colón came to Pennsylvania from Puerto Rico in 1992 and was appointed as Chief Diversity Officer of Pennsylvania by Governor Josh Shapiro in June 2023. He has spent years working with government agencies and community organizations to support diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts and programs. In his current role, Colón is responsible for advancing the Commonwealth’s employment strategies, administrative policies and service programs that embrace DEI and belonging.
Colón’s lecture themed, “Prosperity, Power, and Progress” will honor Hispanic Heritage Month by recognizing the significant strides of Hispanic/Latinx communities in the economic, political and social growth of the U.S.
“This event promises to be a dynamic, thought-provoking, and motivational presentation filled with practical information that attendees will find memorable and useful in their daily personal and professional lives,” said Donna Richemond, Montgomery County’s Chief of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
