SESSION 1: INTRODUCTION (THE WHY AND WHAT)

Why Do You Need a Latino Strategy? The Business & Moral Case to Become Latino-Ready

 

Description:

The latest census data release indicates that Hispanics, Latinos, Latinx were responsible for 51% of the total U.S. population growth in 2010- 2020 and grew 23% since 2010, compared to 7.4% growth of the total U.S. population. In Ohio, the Latino population grew 47%, double the national growth. Nationwide, Latinos represent 19% of the population and the most common age is 11 years old, compared to 58 years old for white non-Latinos.

 

The numbers are clear: Latinos are the catalyst of growth and the main source of talent in the United States; without Latinos, organizations will have no customers and no workforce. It is imperative that all organizations are prepared and equipped to fully realize the potential of the second largest demographic group, not only as a matter of organizational sustainability and survival, but also as a moral case for organizations aiming at becoming more just, equitable and inclusive for all.

 

But how much do you know about this diverse, complex, and heterogeneous group labeled under Hispanic, Latinos, Latinx? What do you know about their culture, historical backgrounds,

unique stories? Latinos are a complex, multilayered, diverse, and rich group of individuals that share a common heritage but are as diverse as unique.

 

In this introductory session, attendees will start a journey of awareness and education that will create the foundation to lead a more inclusive organization.
