The Hispanic Association On Corporate Responsibility (HACR), the nation's leading nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance Hispanic inclusion in Corporate America commensurate with its economic contributions, already has everything prepared for a new edition of its Annual Symposium, which brings together several of the most recognized Hispanic leaders in the United States along with respected members of Fortune 500 companies that work to advance Hispanic inclusion, especially in the areas of Employment, Procurement, Philanthropy and Governance.
“By 2060, the Hispanic population is projected to increase to 119 million — 28.6 percent of the nation’s population. Yet, approximately 4% of corporate board positions are held by Hispanics, and less than 4% serve as CEOs,” HACR points out.
What is the HACR Annual Symposium?
“The Power of Hispanic Inclusion” is a symposium focused on teaching corporate employees best business practices based on diversity, equity and inclusion data from industry opinion leaders, as well as the Corporate Inclusion Index (CII ) owned by HACR.
In a program open to the public, attendees will have the opportunity to make valuable connections and learn about HACR's 4 pillars of corporate responsibility:
- Employment: Provide good jobs that ensure individual and family well-being.
- Procurement: Offer vendor opportunities to underrepresented suppliers.

- Governance: Productively seek diverse executive leadership.
Each of the sessions will be led by leading representatives of Fortune 500 companies and HACR corporate leaders, who are diversity and inclusion professionals and high-ranking Hispanic executives.
Speakers will discuss best practices related to Hispanic inclusion across industry sectors and share insights on leadership and networking.
