Since 2009, Survey is Among the Most Followed Measures of Corporate Accountability in the Hispanic Community
Submitted by Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility
January 10, 2023 /CSRwire/ - The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) announces the opening of its annual Corporate Inclusion Index™ (CII) survey for 2023. The survey period extends from today until March 31. HACR’s annual corporate accountability survey offers corporate executives a tool for measuring Hispanic inclusion in employment, procurement, governance, and philanthropy. Last year, a majority of the companies that participated were listed in the Fortune 500 and represented a variety of industries, including commercial banks, diversified financials, financial data services, food, consumer products, beverages, insurance, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, and healthcare, including insurance and managed care; medical products, and equipment.
The survey is open to corporations at no cost. Results are analyzed for a report to be published in early October, during Hispanic Heritage Month. Though the results are aggregated and anonymized, companies that excel in any one of the four pillar areas will be awarded the HACR CII 5-Star Rating during the HACR 31st Annual Symposium: The Power of Hispanic Inclusion™ in New York City, set to take place October 9-11.
"The HACR Corporate Inclusion Index™ is the perfect measurement tool for prescient corporate leaders who are ahead of the curve when it comes to understanding, including, and serving the growing Hispanic community through equitable corporate practices and investments,” said Sylvia Pérez Cash, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of HACR.
“United States demographic trends make Hispanic inclusion a business imperative, and the first step towards sustainable change is understanding how your company measures up,” said Cid Wilson, President and CEO of HACR. “The CII helps companies transform good intentions into actionable steps.”
The annual survey has been the source for comprehensive reporting and measuring on Hispanic inclusion since 2009. It is among the most followed surveys of corporate accountability in the Hispanic community. The 2022 HACR CII report examined Hispanic inclusion practices at companies as they recalibrated following the volatility of the prior two years of a global pandemic and renewed interest in social justice. This year’s survey offers returning participants the chance to measure progress and areas of opportunity for greater Hispanic inclusion. New participants are invited to leverage their survey results to establish a starting point for their Hispanic inclusion journey.
The survey is open to all companies and gives newcomers a baseline assessment and a chance to demonstrate commitment to the Hispanic community. Corporations interested in learning more can take the first step with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting www.hacr.org/cii.
