On May 8, 2018, the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR), recognized 36 corporate leaders at the 2018 HACR Young Hispanic Corporate Achievers™ (YHCA) Awards Gala, after participating in a four-day leadership development program. Hosted once again by Altria Group, the program was held on May 4 – May 8, at the Four Seasons in Las Vegas.

“Each year the HACR Young Hispanic Corporate Achievers™ (HACR YHCA) award recipients exemplify the best talent that Corporate America has to offer,” said Claudia Baltazar Mills, 2016 HACR YHCA Alum and senior manager of Communications for Altria Group Distribution Company. “Altria is proud to continue to sponsor the HACR YHCA program and its effort to further develop the next generation of Hispanic leaders.”

Now in its 12th year, the HACR YHCA program was created to recognize young executives in Corporate America who have shown leadership qualities at their respective companies along with a proven commitment to the Hispanic community, and are leading the way in establishing a new standard of excellence in Corporate America.

“Building and training a robust pipeline of diverse talent is going to be crucial for the future success of Corporate America,” said HACR President & CEO, Cid Wilson. “The HACR YHCA program not only helps companies identify their high potential talent, but gives them the necessary skills to take their companies to the next level and further elevate the power of Hispanic inclusion.”

To qualify for the HACR YHCA program, candidates must be of Hispanic origin, between the ages of 25-40 at the time the award is received, and must also be employed at Fortune 500 and/or HACR Corporate Member company.
