CHICAGO—Hispanic Executive, in partnership with the Consortium of Latino Employee Organizations (CLEO), a Chicago-originated organization founded by Dr. Robert Rodriguez, is proud to present the first-ever Latino ERG Digital Summit, which is set to take place on May 21, 2020 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (EST).
“The mission of this digital summit is to create a platform for the leaders of the Fortune 500 Latino employee resource groups to virtually connect during this unprecedented time so that we can continue making strides towards creating inclusive and equitable workplaces for our Latino professional community,” says Pedro A. Guerrero, publisher of Hispanic Executive and CEO of Guerrero Media. “Dr. Robert Rodriguez, a longtime friend of Hispanic Executive, and I are excited to join forces for this convening, with the hope of inspiring action to advance our collective mission.”
“The Latino ERG leaders of CLEO are excited to partner with Hispanic Executive on this first-ever digital Latino ERG Summit,” says Dr. Robert Rodriguez, president of DRR Advisors. “This summit continues the long standing CLEO tradition of bringing Latino ERG leaders to share best practices, participate in professional development, explore ways to collaborate and to raise awareness of leading nonprofits supporting the Latino community.”
The digital summit will also welcome recent Hispanic Executive cover star María Teresa Kumar, founding president and CEO of Voto Latino, who will advocate for the importance of registering Latino voters and galvanizing corporate support around National Voter Registration Day—a top concern for the Latino professional community.
“The only way that we’re going to be at the table and not on the menu is for us to ensure we are building the infrastructure that we need, we’re registering our friends and family, and we’re having honest conversations about what’s going on in this country,” shared María Teresa Kumar in her cover story with Hispanic Executive.
