What makes a company “good” for Hispanics?

This question has been asked by the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) since its founding in 1986, when several progressive, community-based visionary leaders joined together to form a coalition of national advocacy organizations focused on corporate social responsibility initiatives and the emerging U.S. Hispanic consumer.

The purpose of the HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (CII) is to seek answers to this question in a pragmatic manner — not an easy task, but one that has to be undertaken. It is the one question that allows HACR to determine Corporate America’s commitment to the nation’s fastest growing consumer, voter, taxpayer, and workforce population. The answers provide HACR a tool with which to measure levels of Hispanic inclusion in four key areas: Employment, Procurement, Philanthropy, and Governance.

We are pleased to work with our Corporate Members, stakeholders, and others to provide them with the expertise and tools that are necessary to help companies create a profile of Hispanic inclusion that can drive meaningful change through the examination of multiple focus areas. Our goal is to build a path to progress by identifying opportunities in the company’s diversity and inclusion efforts and helping them achieve the necessary changes to impact Hispanic inclusion in Corporate America in a positive way.
