HBSAB & HLAA Event: LESSONS FROM SUCCESSFUL HISPANIC AND LATINX LEADERS IN THE USA
Join the Harvard Business School Association of Boston and the Harvard Latino Alumni Alliance on December 7th at 5pm EST to learn about Hispanic or Latinx leaders and their longer-term impact in government and business, and to discuss how we can reshape notions of diverse and inclusive leadership.
Latinx-owned firms compose a significant —and still growing— percentage of U.S. businesses. The growth rate of Latinx businesses in the United States, both non-employer and employer firms (those that have paid employees), has outpaced the growth rate of all other groups. This growth comes despite the fact that Latinx businesses have the lowest rate of financial institution-based loans among all other groups of employer firms. When it comes to entrepreneurship, Latinx entrepreneurs are starting small businesses faster than the rest of the startup population and becoming a bigger part of the total U.S. market every day. According to a study by the Stanford Graduate School of Business, if those businesses grew as fast as the U.S. average, they could add $1.4 trillion to the U.S. economy.
What are the main challenges that Hispanics and Latinx face in corporate life in the USA? What barriers are they finding to start and grow their businesses? Is the Hispanic culture an asset to grow professionally or a handicap to be perceived as a valuable professional? During this session, we will get input from Hispanic and Latinx leaders that have ample experience in different areas of corporate life in America, from education, to nonprofit representation to giving, to finance and entrepreneurship.
