The HACR Research Institute (HRI) is the research arm of HACR and is devoted to objective research, analysis, and publication of Hispanic-related issues in Corporate America. The institute focuses its research on HACR’s four pillars: Employment, Procurement, Philanthropy, and Governance, and also explores other issues pertaining to Hispanic inclusion in the workforce and national demographics. The goal of the HRI is to assess current Hispanic trends and stimulate discussion on Hispanic inclusion in Corporate America.
Through the HRI, HACR publishes annual studies on the state of the Hispanic community and corporate best practices in Employment, Procurement, Philanthropy, and Governance along with the HACR Corporate Inclusion Index. The research institute also publishes the Corporate Governance Study, and other independent studies conducted internally and through partnerships with leading advocacy organizations. By providing information on the status of Hispanics in Corporate America, HACR can focus on issues relevant to Hispanics and investigate solutions to the existing inequity.
