HACEMOS: AT&T EMPLOYEES MAKING A DIFFERENCE

In February 2016, LATINAStyle magazine recognized HACEMOS, the Latino employee resource group (ERG) of AT&T, as one of the “Top 10 Hispanic ERGs” of 2015. It’s the 18th year in a row our employees have made this prestigious list.

Among their extensive accomplishments, HACEMOS received the President’s Volunteer Service Award for completing 31,065 hours of volunteer work in 2014. In December 2015, the group placed 3rd in the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s annual ERG Summit. “Our people care about our business and their communities,” said Cinthya Allen, national president, HACEMOS. “The energy of our members is contagious.”

The HACEMOS ERG is best known for their flagship program: National High Tech Day (HTD). The one-day event introduces high school students to mentoring opportunities as well as information about careers in STEM. “The more we can expose them to careers in technology, the more they will expand their possibilities. HACEMOS does a great job of developing the leaders of tomorrow,” said Mayra Caceres, a principal network planning engineer for AT&T.

This year HTD will celebrate its 18th year, with events in more than 30 cities and
