Symposium panels to focus on developing Hispanic talent and women in leadership roles

The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) today announced the participation of Jesús Chavarría, CEO, Editor and Publisher of HispanicBusiness, as the Tuesday Morning Breakfast keynote speaker at the HACR Annual Symposium.

Chavarría will enlighten participants with his personal journey of success and what challenges he faced in his pursuit of developing and growing one of the nation’s leading Hispanic publications. A pioneer in English-speaking Hispanic media, he has also been credited for bringing national awareness to the growing U.S. Hispanic enterprise community.

“It is an honor to celebrate with HACR during their 25th Anniversary milestone and their Annual Symposium,” said Jesús Chavarría. “As we welcome the next generation of Hispanic business leaders, we are counting on becoming an increasingly vital segment to the boardrooms of Corporate America. At the forefront of this movement, we find HispanicBusiness media paving the path ahead.”

HispanicBusiness has been a driving force for research, management advice, trend tracking, and success stories for the small-business audience. Chavarría has played an integral role in bringing national awareness about the burgeoning U.S. Hispanic community.

“As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we are honored to have Jesús Chavarría - an innovator, trailblazer, and inspirational leader - as a keynote speaker at our Annual HACR Symposium,” said Carlos F. Orta, president and CEO of HACR. “As one of the nation’s most recognized authorities on Hispanic media and Hispanic business, Mr. Chavarría is an invaluable asset to the Hispanic business community and one whose work is well recognized and respected thought Corporate America.”
