Washington, DC - CEOs and corporate executives gathered for 18th Annual HACR Symposium. Executives from Fortune and HACR corporate member companies interacted with a cross-section of the nation’s Hispanic leaders and government officials.
Key to HACR’s annual Symposium is the HACR CEO Roundtable, which provides a forum for the highest-ranking executives of HACR’s corporate member companies to discuss best practices related to inclusive employment and retention strategies. They look at ways to increase the Hispanic Consumer Market (HCM) outreach and brand loyalty, diversity in governance, philanthropy and the importance of the HCM to Corporate America.
In its fourth year, the 2010 HACR CEO Roundtable was hosted by CEO John G. Stumpf Wells Fargo President, Chairman and CEO, Stephen P. Holmes, Wyndham Worldwide Chairman and CEO, Don Browne, Group President of Telemundo Communications Group, and moderated by Norma Garcia, evening news anchor for Noticiero Telemundo Dallas and Noticiero Telemundo San Antonio.
“Hosting the 2010 HACR CEO Roundtable has reinforced my belief in the importance of inclusion and diversity in all its aspects from employment and procurement to philanthropy and governance,” said John Stumpf, chairman, president and CEO for Wells Fargo & Company. “I am proud that Wells Fargo was the first financial services company to host the HACR CEO Roundtable. This engagement is one of the many steps we are taking to achieve our vision of satisfying the financial needs of all the communities that we serve and making diversity a competitive advantage.”
Next year HACR will be celebrating its 25th year of operation. Events are scheduled from April 29 – May 3, 2011 to commemorate this momentous milestone. All events will take place in our nation’s capital Washington DC.
