WHAT IS THE HACR YOUNG HISPANIC CORPORATE ACHIEVERS™ PROGRAM?
HACR launched the HACR Young Hispanic Corporate Achievers™ (YHCA) program in 2007 as a way to spotlight the outstanding achievements of young Hispanic professionals in Corporate America and to further our mission of increased Hispanic representation on corporate boards and in the C-suite. Selected candidates complete an intensive two-month leadership development, education, and training program focused on corporate diversity, professional leadership advancement, and community engagement.
THE 2024 APPLICATION PROCESS IS OPEN!
Each year, this program accepts nominees from Fortune 500 and/or HACR Corporate Member companies aged 25 to 40. Up to 80 high-potential Hispanic corporate employees are selected based on their demonstrated leadership qualities and capabilities at their respective corporations.
They must also be committed to advancing the Hispanic community. HACR YHCAers are role models for other rising Fortune 500 executives and lead the way in establishing a new standard of excellence in Corporate America.
To date, over 1,200 candidates have been nominated, more than 400 have completed the program, and many alumni have gone on to make their marks as executives in various industries.
