"Today, our Women CAN PENtors welcomed their PENtees from Communities In Schools Lehigh Valley for a morning full of food, fun and friendship. These pen-pals have been exchanging hand written letters for a few months now and finally got the opportunity to bring their bond face to face. Our Olympus PENtors were honored to host these wonderful girls. It was a very special morning that we will never forget." ~ Julia Rizzuto, Olympus Fellow and Co-Founder of the PENtors Program
Across Olympus, employees connect and build relationships through Colleague Affinity Networks (CANs). These special interest groups celebrate our commonalities and increase understanding of our differences through group meetings, education, special events and team projects.
Today's CAN spotlight is Shelley Lariz, the San Jose Intercultural CAN Lead (center in photo). Her favorite aspect of this role is the opportunity she has to work with employees who want to represent their cultures and create educational and exciting events that enable fellow employees to experience the best their cultures have to offer with displays on history, geography, fine and folk arts, music and food.

In honor of #NationalVolunteerMonth, here's a look at Jim, Jersey, and Olyvia's story.

One year later and those little dogs are all grown up - Jersey is 82 pounds and Olyvia is 64 pounds. What a difference a year can make! #OlympusINvolved #TBT
