Medtronic marks Hispanic Heritage Month applauding achievements of its diverse talent, including Senior Program Manager, Ethics & Compliance, Adriana Davies.

"I emigrated to the U.S. from Colombia over 25 years ago with a strong yearning to develop and succeed in a new country and culture. Since joining Medtronic  six years ago, I found a place where I can bring my education, experience, and creativity to bear with meaning and impact in my function and my Latino community," shares Adriana. 

Celebrating histories, cultures, identities and contributions

Medtronic Hispanic heritage

At Medtronic, diversity, inclusion, and engagement aren’t just buzzwords — they’re instruments of innovation. Instruments that power the kind thinking that leads to solutions that truly transform healthcare. It’s a fact — when people from different cultures, genders, walks of life, and points of view come together, the quality of work improves exponentially. 

Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.
