Results Information

Program Name: Power Summit
Problem

Workforce diversity is significantly hindered by the underrepresentation of minorities. The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility indicated that only seven percent of board seats are occupied by Hispanics. Even lower is the rate of executive positions held by Latinos, comprising just one percent. The trend in underrepresentation is seen in voting and elected offices across our nation. The question remains, how do we create a pipeline with direct access to these sectors?

Strategy

Our strategy of leveraging youth, media, celebrity voices and technology has demonstrated great success since the program’s inception in 2012. 30% of our speakers are heads of their organization (Founders, CEOs and Presidents) and includes notable entities such as The White House, Google, HuffingtonPost, Buzzfeed and many more. We recruit individuals year round to attend and create opportunities for one-to-one engagement during the summit. Many leave with new networks and opportunities.

IF:THEN

IF If a venue for connection, networking and resources was made available to you Latino professionals, no matter their background, locale or socio-economic status...

THEN they will be able to reach their full civic and career potential.
