Leveling the financial area and honoring Hispanic Heritage Month -- MarketWatch
Sep 11, 2020 (Heraldkeepers) -- Pandocap international broadcast "Unifying the Latino voice while creating economic parity for all". September 14, 2020
Sept. 10, 2020, San Francisco, Calif. - Pandocap, a leading financial media company, will provide the platform for a one-hour international broadcast honoring the U.S. Hispanic community on September 14, 2020, at 12:30 p.m. EDT.
The sophisticated, yet informal program will give leaders in our community the opportunity to celebrate our Hispanic heritage. Current participants include Claudia Romo Edelman (We Are All Human), California Lutheran University, Henry R. Munoz III (Momento Latino), Ana Valdez (Latino Donor Collaborative), Jessica Contreras of Fuego Fino, and many more. Now more than ever, it is clear that the Latino community has led us through these times, and we are making sure our voices are heard and recognized as we continue to drive economic growth in the United States and the world.
The broadcast will give those groups who are traditionally excluded from this landscape - specifically Latin communities, women, and other minority groups - inspiration and ideas regarding financial literacy and education. “We want to champion the Latino voice to be heard and seen worldwide as a powerful economic force,” says Laura Lucas, founder and CEO of Pandocap. “We will culminate with a call to action at the end to 'Vota con Amor' (votawithlove.org), which is a nonpartisan effort to have a historic voter turnout in the Latino community.” Full program information and a guest list can be found at Pandocap.
Other data points for the program:
- Only 3.8% of the industry's more than 87,000 accredited professionals are black or Latino, according to the Certified Financial Planners board
- The total number of women running Fortune 500 firms has grown to a record high of 38, reports
- Women make up less than 8% of the leaders on the Fortune 500 list, and none of those women are Black or Latina. When looking at the overall C-suite, women comprise only a fifth of these roles, despite making up nearly half of the entry-level workforce.
“As a proud Mexican-American, in that order, I am happy to be a part of this broadcast and of this movement. Our time is now, our moment is now — NOW let’s come together in support of one another and in celebration of what our culture, upbringing, heritage, and power as a community is and will always be,” says Fuego Fino CEO, Jessica Contreras
