Republica Havas Celebrates Latino Culture and Breaks Language Barriers with #SpeakHispanic Initiative
Republica Havas is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2023 with the launch of #SpeakHispanic, a bold awareness initiative that bridges cultural traditions and emerging perspectives on what it means to be Latino in the U.S. today.
I’m writing at the onset of Hispanic Heritage Month to join the celebration of our community’s long-term accomplishments, inspired by one of America’s preeminent national institutions: The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. This past week, the museum unveiled a new exhibit to celebrate the unparalleled work and accomplishments of Latinas in journalism, ¡De última hora!: Latinas Report Breaking News. The exhibit explores the relationship between Spanish-language TV and American history through the collective experiences of seven Latina journalists, including Ilia Calderón, Dunia Elvir, Marilys Llanos, Gilda Mirós, Lori Montenegro, María Elena Salinas and Blanca Rosa Vílchez. These Latinas have paved the way and serve as role models and mentors for future generations of Latina journalists in American media. by Daisy Expósito-Ulla

Women and girls aren't often the focus of media campaigns. They are often relegated to side roles and characters, or perpetuate negative stereotypes (often centering around unrealistic expectations). It's exciting and refreshing when campaigns break this mold, however.
With limited inclusive content in traditional media, brands and people with disabilities are finding representation on social media
With limited inclusive options across TV and film, it’s not surprising that the disability community has found more of what it’s looking for across social media channels, where content creators with disabilities are actively filling the inclusivity void across traditional media channels. It’s important to note that while disabled creatives are finding success in social media, this is not a replacement for the decline in representation in TV and films.
