Hispanic economic growth represents 40% of the total growth of the United States, including 46% of new home growth and 80% of all new small business creation. Powering up their progress will be good for Hispanics and good for America.

WORKING TOGETHER FOR:

BETTER HEALTH

Hispanics are underserved in terms of public health education, access to medical services and representation in the healthcare professions. As a result, Hispanics are less likely to adopt preventative care behaviors and are more vulnerable to diseases.

BETTER JOBS

Hispanics represent 18.7% of the population but less than 5% of tech and healthcare professions. They are also less than 2% of executive leadership and less than 1% of corporate boards. On the flipside, they are the entrepreneurial engine of our country. However, they struggle to get financing in order to scale their businesses.

BETTER EDUCATION

Despite the extraordinary progress Hispanics have made improving their high school graduation rates and earning college degrees, Latinos still lag the rest of the population. Barriers include: lack of understanding of how to navigate the system, access to scholarships and a shortage of Hispanic mentors.

GENDER EQUALITY

Latinas are the lowest paid segment in the U.S., earning on average 30% less than the rest of the population. In addition, Latinas report 7 hours per day of unpaid work vs. 4 hours for non-Hispanics. That’s 75% more in family and household chores than the rest of the population. Equal pay and sharing of household tasks are key issues to overcome for Latinas to achieve their full potential.
