Herbalife Ltd. is formalizing its support of the Hispanic community at the corporate level as a new member of the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR), the nutrition company said today.
HACR utilizes education, business resources and public policy to advance Hispanics in corporate America. The coalition includes 16 national organizations representing more than 46 million Hispanics across the country. As a Corporate Member, Herbalife has committed to cultivating an inclusive work environment and leveraging its business to improve Latino communities.
“As a company proudly invested in the Latino community, and one that recognizes the talent and power of Hispanics in the United States, Herbalife is excited to be part of the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility,” said Ibi Fleming, Herbalife Senior Vice President and Managing Director of the North America region.
Herbalife has furthered its outreach to Latinos with event sponsorships ranging from the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute’s annual gala to Hispanas Organized for Political Equality’s 24th Annual Latina History Day Conference. Other initiatives include educational opportunities such as a roundtable discussion Herbalife hosted last month for 45 high school students from Prepa Tecnológico de Monterrey’s Chihuahua Campus.
