Comerica Bank Takes Part in HACR Research Initiative Measuring Hispanic Inclusion in Corporate America
DALLAS, Sept. 29, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Comerica Bank announced its participation in the 2020 HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (CII), a research initiative conducted by the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) and the HACR Research Institute. The index benchmarks the status of Hispanic diversity and inclusion in corporate America.
Participation in the survey is part of Comerica’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion. The index improves corporations’ understanding of deficits regarding Hispanic and Latinx diversity initiatives and provides a pathway to progress.
“Comerica values diversity and inclusion and utilizing resources like the HACR Corporate Inclusion Index allows us to identify areas of improvement,” said Nate Bennett, Senior Vice President, Chief Diversity Officer and Head of Talent Acquisition. “We understand there always remains opportunity for improvement, but we continue to strive in making progress with our ultimate goal of exceeding the expectations for promoting diversity and inclusion.”
The CII focuses on the fields of employment, procurement, philanthropy and governance. Evaluation of Comerica using key metrics in these areas will assist in identifying diversity and inclusion opportunities.
“On behalf of HACR’s Board of Directors, we congratulate Comerica for keeping Hispanic inclusion top of mind,” said HACR Senior Vice President and Chief Operation Officer, Dr. Lisette Garcia. “By promoting Hispanic inclusion, businesses like Comerica are cultivating a corporate culture that encourages forward thinking, which sustains their ability to outpace competitors.”
