5 REASONS TO PARTNER WITH THE HNBA
Corporate America finds value in partnering with the HNBA to deliver co-branded mentoring, educational, leadership and other programming to our members and the communities that we serve. These strategic partnerships are delivering measurable results in meeting partners’ objectives, and highlight our strategic partners’ commitment to creating greater opportunities for Latinx lawyers and improving the lives of Latinx individuals in America.
Between 2012 and 2015, Latinx owned businesses (includes solo, small-and medium-size law firms) grew 7.5%-fifteen times as fast as all other U.S. companies. In fact, Latinx individuals are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs and small business owners in the United States. Recognizing that the HNBA and its partners are uniquely positioned to provide both legal and business assistance to Latinx small business owners, the HNBA, in partnership with MassMutual, launched the Su Negocio Program in 2016. This important program empowers Latinx small business owners at all stages of business formation, funding and expansion, by providing targeted information and resources to help them succeed. The U.S. Small Business Administration and SCORE also participate in the workshops offered in different states across the nation.
The Microsoft Corporation has been a long-standing partner of the HNBA, and in 2013, this commitment was extended through the ground breaking and innovative HNBA/Microsoft Intellectual Property Law Institute (IPLI). Part of the HNBA “Su Futuro”™ programs and initiatives, IPLI is a 7-day intensive, immersion program conducted in Washington, D.C. The program is aimed at Latinx law students interested in intellectual property law, including patents, copyrights, trade secrets and trademarks. Microsoft has “an enduring commitment to work to fulfill [their] public responsibilities and to serving the needs of people in communities worldwide… This commitment has extended far beyond [their] products and services and has been amplified many times over through a network of partners, including governments, nonprofits and other organizations.”
Without a doubt, U.S. Latinx individuals are a significant cultural and economic force. Our contributions are integral to the country’s development and economic health. Yet even as we grow in influence and power, we too often neglect to protect ourselves and our families. Taking care of family is part of who we are as Latinx individuals, but are we maximizing our resources so we take care of today’s living while also cushioning tomorrow? If something happened, would our loved ones be in a though spot without income? What can we do to safeguard those who are most important to us? In partnership with Prudential, program participants now have access to a variety of educational materials and financial tools to achieve overall financial wellness for themselves, their families, and even future generations. This important program, called Su Dinero, is being offered in selected cities across the country and during the HNBA Corporate Counsel and Annual Convention. The curriculum focuses on balancing savings and spending; on living well today, while also planning for the future. Part of the Su Comunidad programs and initiatives, this program is another way to provide education and strategies that may promote the economic empowerment of our members and communities.
