WASHINGTON, Nov. 20 /CSRwire/ – On November 14, 2018, the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) hosted its first Corporate Inclusion Index (CII) Awards Dinner at the J.W. Marriott hotel in Washington, D.C. PepsiCo served as the dinner’s main sponsor.

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 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 following companies won the HACI award in the following categories:

Employment:  ADP, Aetna, Allstate Insurance Company, Anthem, AT&T, Cigna, Coca-Cola Company, Comcast NBCUniversal, GM, Humana Inc., Intel Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Metlife, Miller Coors LLC, Morgan Stanley, PepsiCo, Prudential Financial Inc., State Farm, Verizon, and The Walt Disney Company.
