Heritage Months 2024

Heritage months are periods in the year that are assigned to different months to celebrate various ethnicities. These are times to celebrate their heritage, but also to educate others about their history and the contributions they’ve made to society. They are extremely helpful for those looking to understand their own culture and others too. A diversity calendar highlights religious holidays, annual observances, and national heritage months throughout the year.

Here we will learn about some of the remaining heritage months 2023 in the United States and upcoming heritage months 2024 that you can find on our Diversity Calendar so you can ensure to celebrate diversity months 2024.
