BAM Celebrates National Caribbean-American Heritage Month

June 30th, 2023 — National Caribbean-American Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the Caribbean-American community’s legacy, history, and achievements. Build America Mutual and our associates are taking the opportunity to celebrate our Caribbean-American colleagues, counterparties, and members and their many contributions. Throughout our history, Caribbean-Americans have brought vibrant cultures, languages, traditions, and values that strengthen our country and add new chapters to our common story.  At BAM, we celebrate and embrace the unique contributions made by people of all cultures, and encourage all employees to take time this to reflect on the history and achievements of Caribbean-Americans who have championed and helped finance essential public infrastructure across the nation.


While we have made strides to combat racism that has uniquely impacted Black and Latino immigrant communities, including Caribbean-Americans, several communities continue to face systemic barriers to equity, opportunity, and justice. We strive to create a workplace where every employee feels safe, valued, and empowered to be their authentic self and embrace the culture of their heritage.


We continue to work to increase the cultural competency of our team, and share new resources to support our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives.
