As we gear up to attend this year’s Power of Performance: Leadership at the Next Level Conference in September, I’ve been thinking a lot about the meaning behind this Conference’s title. Power of Performance reminds me of all the statistical or qualitative research that we all have become well-versed at to validate and substantiate the power of Hispanics at many levels, and the impact this power has in the U.S. economy.  Here’s the memo I wrote to myself as an at-a-glance reminder of our force and influence in key measurable areas:

Population:  According to the U.S. Census, one of every two babies born today in the U.S. is Hispanic.  We are currently 18% (57 million) of the population – that’s almost one of every 5 people! – and 25% of Americans under 18 years of age are Hispanic.  So it’s no surprise that our buying power will be a whopping $1.7 trillion by 2020, based on projections by the Selig Center for Economic Growth.

The University of Dallas announced a partnership between the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business and Prospanica — The Association of Hispanic Professionals. The new partnership aims to further the Gupta College of Business’ mission to prepare students in a wide variety of management specialties, serving a range of industries.

“Prospanica’s commitment to empowering Hispanic business professionals to achieve their full potential aligns with our mission to prepare our students to become principled and moral leaders,” said Gupta College of Business Dean Brett J. L. Landry. “This partnership is a natural fit, and we look forward to welcoming Prospanica’s members into our classrooms."

On a Lighter Note

The new "On a Lighter Note" section interviews leaders with questions that reveal their personalities in a less formal way. For this issue, we delve into five questions with National Black MBA Association President and CEO Jesse Tyson.

Question 1: Most people’s careers are basically a series of opportunities or paths you need to choose from. And sometimes, you may be left wondering what if I took the other path. Looking back is there a point in your career you’d like to go back to and see where that path would have taken you just out of curiosity?

JT: That's an interesting question but my short answer is "no". Careers typically have staggered starting points and we must determine for ourselves how hard we need to train to finish the race with those who may have gotten a head start on us.
