The Hispanic Promise

Overview

The Hispanic Promise is the first-of-its-kind national pledge to hire, promote, retain and celebrate Hispanics in the workplace. Launched at the World Economic Forum in 2019, the Hispanic Promise is a non-legally binding sign of intention, a result of the joint effort of multiple Hispanic Organization as a call to action for business leaders and companies of Corporate America to create a more inclusive work environment for Hispanics.

The Promise represents an opportunity for those companies already engaged in inclusion and diversity to showcase their commitment as a Hispanic-friendly place.

Background

Hispanics in the United States

Hispanics make up 18 percent of the U.S. population, 12 percent of annual U.S. GDP and $1.7 trillion of annual consumer purchasing power. However, Hispanics are often undervalued, underrepresented and misperceived and it affects how they feel about their place in society and in the workplace.

The Hispanic Sentiment Study
  • The first annual Hispanic Sentiment Study was conducted in August 2018 by We Are All Human in order to measure U.S. Hispanic sentiment on the political, business and educational landscapes, as well as on personal values. An alarming 77 percent of respondents were unaware of recent accomplishments achieved by the Hispanic community across the country.
  • Despite serving as a major source of U.S. labor, 74 percent of U.S. Hispanics feel they cannot be themselves at work.
  • Research indicates that more than 80 percent of U.S. Hispanics state that if a brand plays a “positive role” in their community they will be more favorable to that brand and more likely to become a customer. This is an opportunity that most companies do not realize.
Hispanic Leadership Summits

We Are All Human has regular regional Hispanic Leadership Summits across the country to gather leaders in a platform for dialogue and change that addresses the lack of unification among the U.S. Hispanic community.

The Hispanic Promise

  • I promise to create inclusive environments within the workplace and to take positive intentional actions to hire, promote, retain, and celebrate Hispanics as employees, customers and citizens.
  • I aim to create or strengthen employee engagement, mentorship programs, employee or business resource groups, talent advancement and an inclusive company culture where employees feel they belong, are valued and have a voice.
  • I acknowledge the priorities selected by Hispanic Leaders under the Vision 2020, which include access to education, financial empowerment and improving the image of Hispanics.
  • As a result, I aim to increase the number of Hispanic employees in my company to better reflect the US population, increase Hispanic representation in all levels and all functions of my company, and assess the sentiment of Hispanics in my company.
