To help Hispanics and children of current HACEMOS members who want to pursue higher education, HACEMOS has launched a scholarship program. Each year, scholarships are available for full-time study at the student’s preferred approved institution.
Two first-level managers for Southwestern Bell Telephone in San Antonio, Texas, had the idea to bring together residents of various Texas communities for a weekend conference during the summer of 1988. A vision of whether a Southwestern Bell internal organization should be set up to handle difficulties and worries about the development of our business, our Hispanic body, and the relevant communities.
HACEMOS was formally established on January 1, 1989, and the Houston organization was the inaugural Chapter to be admitted. The chosen emblem represented the corporation, the community, and the employees as being equally important; the clasped hands demonstrate mutual respect and power.
To promote a culture where individuals support one another as they thrive in their personal, professional, and community endeavors. Through networking, volunteerism, and social activities, the Hispanic/Latino Employee Association of AT&T (HACEMOS) ERG promotes a culture where employees support and encourage one another to achieve professionally, personally, and in the community. This ERG places a strong emphasis on education and offers its members chances for personal growth as well as scholarships in the communities it supports. Through its extensive scholarship program and distinctive events like High Technology Day, HACEMOS is committed to altering lives.
