Lacking Latinx Representation
on Your Board? We Can Help.

DHR and Harvard Business School Latino Alumni Association (HBSLAA) have teamed up to launch a program aimed at increasing Latinx representation on boards.

A Wake-Up Call Today, Hispanics represent 18% of the U.S. population, yet only 2.7% of board members at Fortune 1000 companies are Latino according to a report by KPMG and Latino Corporate Directors Association. At the same time, research from McKinsey & Company shows that diverse firms outperform their non-diverse competitors by up to 36% in profitability.There is a growing demand for diverse board candidates as companies increasingly understand the connection between diversity of thought and improved results.

By engaging our Latinx Diversity Network of 4,600 seasoned executives, we are bringing more Latinx professionals to board seats at public and private companies across sectors.

The economic value of the U.S. Latino community in 2017 was $2.3 trillion, comparable to the world’s eighth-largest GDP, with population growth among U.S. Latinos growing six times faster than non-Latinos.* This group will continue to grow and drive the economy, making companies that represent the Latinx perspective poised for success.
