Hispanic Organization Has Major Impact on Corporate America
The National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) is a group that has been incredibly influential is helping Latino executives rise through the corporate ranks and become leaders in some of the nation's largest companies. They've gone from being an advocate for Hispanic Executives to being an influential leader in the movement to reach the quickly expanding demographic known as the Hispanic consumer. This energetic and extremely motivated society is holding an annual Hispanic Executive Summit on April 27-29 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. They will also host a National Conference October 2006 in Cincinnati that is sponsored by companies like Procter and Gamble, BMW, and American Express (just three of the 120 or so that I saw on their website). I also understand that NSHMBA is going to make a surprise announcement at their conference involving a very influential Hispanic executive. Please contact me regarding this story idea. This is incredibly timely given the state of the nation's reaction to current immigration issues!
U.S. companies that once relied on diversity programs to boost Hispanic involvement have had to undergo a rapid evolution in recent years to stay abreast of the influence brought on by a growing Hispanic market.
Companies like Procter & Gamble, BMW, and American Express are keeping pace by supporting organizations that promote professional development for Hispanics, like the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA), which help Hispanic executives achieve professional success through mentoring, professional development, and education.
“Every prediction about the explosive growth and deep consumer impact of the Hispanic market has come to pass. This is important from the consumer perspective but it’s also something that will change the face of corporate leadership in the years to come.” said Lourdes Hassler, Chief Executive Officer from NSHMBA.
NSHMBA is positioned as a critical link between Hispanic executives and the corporations that will rely on their unique skills to run their companies in the future. Their partnership with corporate America has become increasingly vital as more and more Hispanic executives step into leadership positions in companies across the country.
This was exemplified in a Chapter Leadership Training held at Pizza Hut Corporate offices in Addison, Texas that drew over 100 Hispanic leaders who represented 13 countries of origin and 24 industries ranging from Finance to International Trade.
The organization is steadfast in providing professional training and development opportunities like the Annual Hispanic Executive Summit taking place at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City, April 27 through 29, and 17th Annual Conference and Career Expo being held in Cincinnati, Ohio October 26 through 28, 2006.
