Latino Employee Resource Launched At Summit

DALLAS - The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC)  has announced the “Latino Employee Resource Group (ERG) Summit and Corporate Challenge” at the 31st Annual National Convention & Business Expo in Dallas, Texas on Thursday, September 23rd, 2010.

The Latino ERG Summit and Corporate Challenge is designed to bring Latino ERGs together to share best practices and to provide compelling results on the value of Latino ERGs in corporate America. The three key components include:

  1. The Growing Importance of Latino ERG’s
    Successful groups of Hispanic employees who have formed strong bonds within their corporations, across departments, functions and geographic locations will share their challenges and successes; discuss why and how corporate executives should support Latino ERGs; how ERGs can align their efforts with those of their organizations; and emphasize the value that ERGs bring to their respective corporations.
  2. Latino ERG Leadership Panel
    A panel of corporate leaders and employees will provide various perspectives and share best practices of ERGs.
  3. Best-in-Class Latino ERG Presentations
    In an effort to identify The Best Latino ERG, the USHCC developed a Corporate Challenge for those corporations with Latino ERGs. Over 20 corporations from across the country entered the Challenge and the Top Five corporations were selected by an independent review panel. The top five finalists include: AT&T, Exxon Mobil, Johnson & Johnson, State Farm and Shell Oil. These finalists will be sharing their challenges, successes and future endeavors. The winner of the USHCC Latino ERG Summit and Corporate Challenge will be announced after the presentations on Thursday, September 23rd.

“The USHCC believes in the growing importance of Latino Employee Research Groups, so we were eager to launch the Latino ERG Summit and Corporate Challenge,” said Javier Palomarez, USHCC President and CEO. “We have received a great response from corporations across the nation and are thrilled to introduce this new program at our National Convention.”

“The Latino ERG Summit and Corporate Challenge is an excellent program created by the USHCC. It acknowledges corporations that recognize the value of Latino Employee Resource Groups,” said Dr. Robert Rodriguez, Co-Chair of the Latino ERG Summit and Corporate Challenge. “Our top finalists exemplify extraordinary community involvement, Latino employee engagement, alignment with corporations/business objectives, and a strong mission, vision and structure and governance model.”

The Latino ERG Summit and Corporate Challenge is a key component of the USHCC National Convention & Business Expo which is scheduled for Wednesday, September 22nd through Saturday, September 25th. The Convention is the largest gathering of Hispanic business leaders in America and will bring together thousands of Hispanic entrepreneurs, corporate executives, procurement and supplier-diversity executives from the private and public sectors, as well as Hispanic Chamber of Commerce leaders from throughout the U.S..
