Hispanic Public Relations practitioners tell the Public Relations Society of America about common diversity and inclusion mistakes they experience in organizations, and suggest ways companies can improve including:
Recognize Hispanics come from a diversity of backgrounds, cultures, perceptions and languages; don't expect an individual Hispanic employee to be an authority on the entire group.
Consider each individual’s talents. Don’t pigeonhole Hispanic professionals into roles that only involve interfacing with Hispanic audiences or speaking Spanish.
Remember many Hispanics are multi-generation Americans and are not native Spanish speakers.
