Latinos on Corporate Boards
For thirty years, HACR has been leading the way for inclusion of Hispanics in Corporate America. During this time we have systematically researched the topic of corporate governance and have become the leading subject matter expert in the area of Hispanic representation on corporate boards.
2013 marked the 20th anniversary of HACR’s benchmarking of Hispanic inclusion at the highest levels of Corporate America. Between 1993, 2003, and 2007, we saw significant momentum in Hispanic representation in the corporate boardroom. However, the 2013 data suggests the momentum has been lost and while yes, there were some gains, it is important to highlight these gains were at best minimal – and not nearly representative given the size and financial strength of the U.S. Hispanic population. Twenty years later Hispanics still only account for roughly three percent of corporate board seats.
