Co-sponsored by the Committee on Ethnic Studies and the Harvard Latino Student Alliance with generous support from the Donald T. Regan Lecture Fund.

This session will feature the rapidly changing demography in America, led by the minority populations with a focus on Latinos. Based on U.S. Bureau Census data, it’s clear that America’s population is dramatically shifting and changing. This population paradigm is an “untapped” source for growing new markets that will impact the economic growth of our country. Future bottom line results will be intricately tied to the changing workforce and workplace, led by minorities who are replacing a predominately White, non-Hispanic population. Further, based on the last two Presidential elections, future federal and state elected officials cannot ignore this political shift. These minority population voters are now seated at the table and will influence future public policy issues.
