The New Standard of Corporate Leadership: The HACR Young Hispanic Corporate Achievers™ Program

28 Corporate Executives from Fortune 500 and HACR Corporate Member Companies Recognized as 2011 HACR Young Hispanic Corporate Achievers™ (HACR YHCA)

The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) honored 28 young corporate executives at this year’s Annual Symposium in Washington DC. The program was hosted by longtime corporate sponsor Altria.

“Altria and its family of companies are honored to continue partnering with HACR to build a solid pipeline of young corporate leaders who have shown exemplary work within their organizations and in the communities they serve,” said Ara Shepard, Associate Director, Diversity and Inclusion, Altria Client Services. “We congratulate HACR for another successful year and commend them on their longstanding history and unwavering mission. We are pleased to continue supporting the 2011 HACR YHCA Program.”

Candidates from across the nation were nominated by their respective companies and selected after careful review. Candidates must identify as being of Hispanic heritage, between the ages of 25-40 years and be employed at a Fortune 500 and/or HACR corporate member company. They should also show leadership qualities and capabilities within their respective corporations, and have a demonstrated track record of commitment to the Hispanic community.

“Now in its 5th year, the caliber of talent continues to grow stronger each and every year. It’s encouraging to see so many companies enthusiastic to nominate and support their best and brightest talent,” said HACR President & CEO, Carlos F. Orta. “We have always believed a company’s success is determined by the diverse talent they recruit and retain, and are honored to offer this exceptional program, as we continue our mission of advancing Hispanic inclusion in Corporate America.”

The 2011 HACR YHCA class is comprised of 17 managers/directors and two vice presidents within Corporate America. Of the 28 finalists, 17 have master’s degrees, 28 have bachelor’s degrees, and combined, serve on 25 non-profit boards resulting in 5,571 hours of volunteer community service.
