WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 06 /CSRwire/ - The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR), one of the nation’s leading organizations for the inclusion of Hispanics in Corporate America, is hosting its 2015 HACR Leadership Pipeline Program (LPP) and HACR STEM Initiative on November 2-3 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C.
The HACR LPP was created to develop Hispanic mid-level managers and corporate leaders from HACR Corporate Member and Fortune companies. The HACR LPP is a unique opportunity for participants to engage in business sessions and development workshops, while learning best practices and managerial skills from the highest level Hispanic executives and business experts.
Among others, the business sessions will include:
Practical Genius Playbook-by Gina Rudan, diversity business partner, Google Inc. and author, Practical Genius.
Business Case Study-Nonprofit Board Engagement-by Dr. William Klepper, professor of Management at the Columbia Business School.
Leadership with a Latino Lens-by Juana Bordas, president of Mestiza Leadership International.
Ten Strategies for Promoting Yourself-by Robert Rodriguez, author of Latino Talent: Effective to Recruit, Retain, and Develop Hispanic Professionals; and David Solís, national executive, Small Business Centralized Sales, Bank of America.
The HACR LPP will also provide participants with significant exposure to corporate leaders and invaluable insights to front the various challenges they may encounter in Corporate America.
“Our goal is to significantly increase the pipeline of mid-level managers and corporate leaders to become strong future executives,” said HACR President and CEO Cid D. Wilson. “We are pleased to launch the HACR LPP. This inaugural program aligns with our mission to advance the inclusion of Hispanics in Corporate America.”
Running concurrently with the HACR LPP, the HACR Research Institute will present its latest research initiative, which focuses on Hispanics in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). This initiative was created to understand the barriers that hinder the professional progression of Hispanics in STEM fields.
The HACR STEM Initiative will feature business sessions that provide Hispanics, corporate leaders, and business experts the opportunity to understand the barriers that limit Hispanic inclusion and the ways in which some companies have tried to overcome these barriers to improve diversity and Hispanic inclusion in STEM fields.
The STEM business sessions include panels focused on the following topics:
Identifying Opportunities in STEM Education
Recruiting Top Hispanic Talent to Your Company
Fueling the Corporate Pipeline with Hispanics
ERG-Led STEM Initiatives in the Hispanic Community
Latinas in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
The Community Spotlight
“The future of Corporate America is increasingly reliant on STEM careers and we need to ensure that Hispanics are included in this career trend,” said Wilson. “The HACR STEM Initiative serves as a guide to help increase Hispanic representation in the STEM pipeline and will provide recommendations on how we can advance in these fields.”
Registration for the HACR LPP and STEM Initiative closes on October 23, 2015.
