NHCC Fall Summit Focuses on Diversity and Inclusion of Hispanics in Corporate America.
San Diego, CA – Representatives from some of America’s largest corporations gathered at the Paradise Point Resort and Spa on Mission Bay in San Diego as part of the 2015 NHCC Fall Summit to focus on ways to prepare and promote more Latinos into managerial- and executive-level positions.
The Washington D.C.-based National Hispanic Corporate Council ‘s Fall 2015 Summit welcomed representatives from Walmart, Boeing, State Farm Insurance, Wells Fargo Bank, Jet Blue and dozens of others.
Given that Latinos make up 17% of the U.S. population but fill only 4% of executive-level positions, summit organizers say the time to invest in building a workforce that can increase Latino leadership in corporate America is now.
“For a variety of reasons, Latinos are under-represented within the upper ranks of America’s largest corporations,” said Octavio Hinojosa, Executive Director of the National Hispanic Corporate Council. "By bringing together companies and subject matter experts, we hope to further the conversation on the importance of implementing effective corporate diversity and inclusion initiatives to ensure our member companies are reaching their fullest potential when it comes to winning over the Hispanic consumer market.”
