Nearly 60 Latino corporate leaders completed the rigorous leadership advancement program in San Francisco this month.

June 16, 2023 /3BL Media/ – The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) is delighted to announce the successful completion of the 16th cohort of the HACR Young Hispanic Corporate Achievers™ program June 14.

The HACR YHCA program boasts an accomplished group of young Hispanic corporate professionals who have demonstrated exceptional leadership skills and significant achievements in their respective fields.

“I am extremely proud to congratulate each and every one of the talented graduates of the HACR Young Hispanic Corporate Achievers™ program on their outstanding achievements,” said Cid Wilson, President & CEO of HACR. “Your dedication, hard work, and unwavering commitment to excellence have set you apart as shining examples of the incredible potential of Hispanic leaders in Corporate America.”

The HACR YHCA program emphasizes professional leadership, community engagement, and corporate diversity, and promotes Hispanic and Latino representation in high-level corporate positions. The program began with virtual training over a two-month period and culminated with a dynamic in-person experience in San Francisco over the past few days. The group bonded over stories of resilience and perseverance during two-and-a-half days of training and one day of community service with The Jamestown Community Center in San Francisco.

The HACR YHCA program advances HACR’s mission of increasing Hispanic representation at the highest levels in Corporate America, as it is rooted in heritage and cultural identity with a focus on corporate diversity, professional leadership, and community engagement. They shared stories from multiple, bi-cultural, multi-lingual, and immigrant perspectives and found common ground over a shared sense of resilience. The final, in-person portion happened in conjunction with the 2023 HACR Executive Programs, a conference for C-suite Latino executives and allies. Although the HACR YHCA candidates engaged in separate programming, the two groups gathered during mealtimes and receptions, offering a unique, strategic opportunity for networking and relationship building between rising and current corporate executives.

A new feature of the leadership development curriculum this year was a community service challenge in partnership with a youth-development organization, The Jamestown Community Center.

36 Fortune 500 and HACR member companies collectively sponsored the 57 Hispanic employees to complete the 2023 program. Here is the list in alphabetical order by company:
