The success of the Hispanic ERG at our Davenport, Iowa facility—Davenport HABLO—inspired the creation of a company-wide network of employees passionate about the culture and interests of the largest minority group in the United States. Founded in 2016, the Arconic Hispanic Network has hundreds of members working to celebrate Hispanic culture, support the attraction, retention and development of Hispanic employees and build external community partnerships that help support the STEM education and career success of Hispanics broadly.
What does that mission look like in action? Arconic Hispanic Network hosts conociéndonos, or “getting to know each other” events, that offer Hispanic perspectives on leadership. And network leadership participates in conferences and panel discussions with community partners on issues relevant to the Hispanic community.
