2018 Corporate Inclusion Index Awards Dinner

The HACR CII Awards Dinner is based on HACR’s CII ratings which are designed around two focus areas – a practice and outcomes assessment in the Employment, Procurement, Philanthropy, and Governance pillars. The HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (CII) is an annual survey that takes a comprehensive measurement of the business practices and strategies of participating companies. The HACR CII helps companies understand the Hispanic inclusion needs of business and benchmarks. The assessment examines key indicators by which companies evaluate progress on diversity and inclusion in order to help them identify opportunities for improvement or best practices for Hispanic inclusion. The HACR Award for Corporate Inclusion, (HACI) is given to companies who achieved a five (5) star rating in any pillar. This year there were a total of fifty participants. Thirty-seven are Fortune 100 companies, nine participated for the first time and the top five industries winning the HACI are banking, insurance, food & beverage, telecommunications, and healthcare.
