11 de septiembre de 2019

We Are All Human Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion, today announced The Hispanic Promise now has 97 signatories following the Hispanic Leadership Summit: Dallas. This represents an increase of 46 companies since its Chicago Summit in April 2019. The promise is a first-of-its-kind national pledge to hire, promote, retain and celebrate Hispanics in the workplace.

On Sept. 9, Hispanic Leadership Summit: Dallas brought together prominent local leaders from companies including AT&T, PepsiCo, Pinnacle Group, Texas Instruments, Southwest Airlines and Yum! Brands at the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University (SMU Cox) to foster robust conversations about advancing the priorities of the U.S. Hispanic community.

"We made history here in Dallas" said Claudia Romo Edelman, former United Nations diplomat and founder and CEO of the We Are All Human Foundation. "For the first time, more than a dozen Hispanic organizations, together with a number of giant corporations, sent a collective strong message to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month by signing the Hispanic Promise. We hope this will be a signal to the country that Corporate America cares about Hispanics as employees, consumers and citizens and that other companies should follow this example."
