“We stand behind The Hispanic Promise, and by signing the pledge, as a company already engaged in inclusion and diversity, showcase our commitment as a Hispanic-friendly workplace, a welcoming employer for a Hispanic workforce and a company with deep understanding of the Hispanic consumer,” Wilhoit added.

We are the ones who have to open the door, so that our children can be a generation of Hispanic stars, fully valued, fully paid, fully respected and recognized. The time has come. We’re ready to shine,” said Claudia Romo Edelman, founder of the We Are All Human Foundation.
