Corporate Board of Advisors

Since 1982, UnidosUS has benefited from the expertise of its Corporate Board of Advisors (CBA) in an effort to advance the interests of Hispanic Americans. This impressive group of senior executives and liaisons from key Fortune 100 corporations meets twice a year to receive updates on UnidosUS activities, dialogue about current matters, and provide advice and support on issues and programs of concern. Through ongoing communication with the CBA, UnidosUS strengthens each CBA member’s capacity to attract and serve the Hispanic population.

These companies are deeply invested in the work of UnidosUS with multi-year commitments supporting various program and advocacy initiatives, research and analysis, events and meetings, and the general operations of the organization. CBA Member Companies include:
