The Gala 2021

December 8, 2021

At the at Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Arts

Joining together to support a strong comeback for Hispanics


The Hispanic community suffers from lack of representation. Hispanics are rarely seen, heard or valued, and because of this they experience challenges towards advancement and recognition. And all of this was before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Over the last year the obstacles faced by Latinos have been further accentuated. Despite their critical positions on the frontlines, they have been disproportionately affected in every aspect – from health, to small businesses, to their daily lives

In spite of all these obstacles, Hispanics are resilient and ready to come back. This Gala makes a statement, joining together to step up for the Hispanic community. We aim to elevate the key role Hispanics play in our society, highlight champions uplifting the community, and celebrate the amazing Hispanic contributions.

We would be honored to see you at our Annual Gala held during the Hispanic Leadership Summit (Dec 7-8) at the United Nations. Join us for an evening dedicated to celebrating the incredible contributions made by Hispanics throughout these challenging times and support their comeback.

With your support we will be able to keep

Unifying the Hispanic community

Gather companies, organizations and civil society into a unifying network of game changers.

Supporting and advancing the Hispanic community

Supporting the upward mobility and recovery of the community through relief efforts, leadership development and network building.

Mobilizing Corporate America

Thanks to our Hispanic Promise initiative we’ve been able to get +200 companies to commit to strengthening Hispanic representation in the workplace and making Latinos a priority to Corporate America.

Changing the perception of Hispanics in the U.S

We have created a large social network and events calendar over the year where the spotlight shines over the Hispanic community and their contributions, not only to change the perception of them but also to create role models for future generations.
