Today, the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) is pleased to announce that PepsiCo, Inc. and Target Corporation will serve as Co-Host Sponsors for the 26th Annual HACR Symposium: The Power of Hispanic Inclusion™ taking place May 7-8, 2018, at the Four Seasons in Las Vegas.
“We are thrilled to have PepsiCo and Target once again as Co-Host Sponsors of our 26th Annual HACR Symposium,” said HACR President & CEO, Cid Wilson. “Both companies recognize the importance of advancing Hispanic inclusion at their companies and in Corporate America. We thank them for partnering with us again for what will be a memorable Symposium in Las Vegas.”
The Annual HACR Symposium: The Power of Hispanic Inclusion™ brings together some of the nation’s most influential Hispanic corporate leaders, diversity and inclusion specialists, public officials, and corporate executives to discuss and identify effective strategies and models for achieving greater inclusion and participation of Hispanics in the areas of Employment, Procurement, Philanthropy, and Governance.
“PepsiCo is a proud partner of HACR and supports its commitment to advocate for diversity and engagement,” said Vice President of Diversity and Engagement for PepsiCo, Merary Simeon. “By leveraging the power of Hispanic inclusion with the country’s top business leaders, HACR helps to amplify the voice of the Hispanic community. It is PepsiCo’s privilege to partner with HACR, Target, and others to lead the critical dialogue necessary for sustainable change.”
“At Target, diversity and inclusion is an all-in, full-contact, participatory endeavor. Everyone has perspective that is needed to fulfill their role as a team member, guest, community, and partner, based on what they are best positioned to impact,” said Target’s Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer & VP of Human Resources, Caroline Wanga. “To truly champion an inclusive society, each stakeholder has to put into practice behaviors that help all co-exist equitably and stay open to how our collective dimensions of difference will interact. There’s only one you. And you, your stories, and your experiences are exactly what we need. We invite the HACR family to stay open with us.”
