Celebrating National Native American Heritage Month

November is National Native American Heritage Month. At CMD-IT we believe cultural diversity in our workforce is not only important for nurturing a more inclusive society; it is crucial to the creative innovation that drives our economy. Today we are honoring and celebrating the successes of the Native American and Indigenous People’s contributions to the tech, computing industries, and society. All of our programs are designed to ensure our target communities – African Americans/Blacks, Hispanics/Latinx, Native Americans/Indigenous People and People with Disabilities – are engaged in computing. Here we talk about the latest at CMD-IT for the month. Highlight monthly content topics. Read the latest news and mark your calendars for upcoming events.

November is a time to celebrate the rich histories, diverse cultures and important contributions of our nation’s first people. Click here to learn more about the history of Native American Heritage Month and read on for the latest news and updates from our team and community.
