THE HISPANIC PROMISE

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, 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 also represents an opportunity for those companies already engaged in inclusion and diversity to showcase their commitment as a Hispanic-friendly place. By signing on the Hispanic Promise, your company will showcase its commitment to create a more inclusive environment for Hispanics.

THE HISPANIC PROMISE 2.0 FRAMEWORK

The Hispanic Promise 2.0 Framework was developed in consultation with multiple-stakeholders (including private sector, nonprofits, and academia) who developed goals, targets, indicators, and resources to provide structured guidance around best practices, benchmarks, and tools to create inclusive environments that support comprehensive Hispanic advancement. Because we know every company is different and is starting from a different point, the 2.0 framework provides you with samples of activities and outcomes at 3 levels so that you can select the right starting point and continue to evolve.

The Hispanic Promise 2.0 Framework starts by having the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations as the umbrella and highlights the 4 goals that are the most impacted by this framework, Goal #3, Good Health and Well-being, Goal#4, Quality Education, Goal #5, Gender Equality and Goal #8, Decent work, and economic growth.

The second tier of the framework refers to the Hispanic Promise 2.0 BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal): For the workforce representation at all levels to mirror the country’s population by 2030 (based on the BLS statistics).

The framework, clearly describes the 6 pillars and main components of each pillar:

Prepare – Support the future workforce to ensure they are equipped with relevant skills and knowledge that fuels their sustainable long-term success and are prepared for the future of work.
Hire – Create pipelines of Hispanic talent at all career levels and facilitate transition from higher education into corporate America.
Promote – Ensure career pathways and advancement opportunities are available and given to Hispanics to grow within companies.
Retain – Provide development support & opportunities for retention at all levels.
Celebrate – Elevate the contributions of Hispanics to increase their visibility, recognize their contributions and celebrate their successes year-round.
Buy – Build a sustainable supply chain and embed supplier diversity standards by contracting with Hispanic-owned and operated businesses. Deepen Hispanic societal impact through economic opportunity development and empowerment.

BACKGROUND

Hispanics in the
U.S.

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.
