As Milwaukee and its business community strive to attract and preserve a talented, diverse workforce, HPGM's founding members recognized the important role they could play in this endeavor and the service it could provide to the Hispanic professional community as well as to corporations in the Greater Milwaukee area. HPGM was started with the help of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin and the Metro Milwaukee Association of Commerce.
After several critical strategic planning sessions, key recruiting of members, and several fun, informal networking socials, HPGM has launched as a multi-generational non-profit 501c(3) organization. With membership over 550 and the positive buzz within the Greater Milwaukee community, HPGM is ready to ask the question:
The stereotypical perception of Hispanics in occupations such as restaurant workers, house cleaners, and poor immigrants is vastly changing. The Hispanic professional class is here and growing as new generation Hispanics can now be seen as:
Export Analyst, Executive Director, Global Procurement Manager, Marketing Director, President, Attorney, Educator, Business Development Manager, Vice President, Community Relations Manager, Entrepreneur, Chemist, Business Banking, Technology Director, Real Estate Executive, Dentist, Training Manager, Cost Analyst, Employee Benefits Specialist, Loan Officer, Division Administrator, Producer, Professor, Communications Officer, Chiropractor, Account Manager, Senior Vice President, Systems Engineer, Alderman, Chief Executive Officer, Web Designer, Restaurant Owner
As Hispanics continue to succeed in the work force, this list will grow and reflect the communities we live in!
