Besides brand recognition and admirable revenues, they are also companies that have had the fortune of working with a dedicated Latina leader by the name of Carmen R. Bauza.

In her current role as Senior Vice President and General Merchandise Manager for Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Ms. Bauza is responsible for leading the Health & Wellness division, over the counter and optical merchandising strategies, optical labs, central fill Rx, and innovations and systems for Walmart stores in the United States. In addition, she sits on the board of directors of Walmex, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores, and the Benton County Literacy Council.
"I've had the opportunity to work for great retail companies," Bauza says, when describing the highlights of working in the retail industry, a career which spans over three decades. "All the companies I've worked for are companies that align with my values."
These same values have translated to making community service a top priority as well. Throughout her career, Bauza, a native of Ponce, Puerto Rico, has worked tirelessly to advocate for Hispanics and foster the professional development of women and minorities in business through her involvement with organizations such as the National Hispana Leadership Institute.
Bauza was responsible for launching inclusion programs during her tenure with The Walt Disney Company in the 1990's, and she is currently one of the executive sponsors of the Hispanic/Latino employee resource group at Walmart, in addition to mentoring over 25 Latina/Hispanic females from the U.S. and Latin America.
For Bauza, implementing and maintaining these types of diversity initiatives is important because they are mutually beneficial for everyone.
One major cause of this is educational disparity among minorities, according to Bauza. "The drop-out rate is significantly higher amongst these groups, it's so important that you influence children at an early age to remain in school and obtain an education. It's going to be critical for the future of this country."
To that end, Ms. Bauza is personally involved with Walmart's "Mi Futuro," a youth mentoring program that identifies potentially "at risk" students and empowers them to achieve academic success.
Companies must also recognize the long-term benefits of developing programs which will attract and retain Hispanic professionals, says Bauza.
"Investment in talent is critical. The more we do that, the more we can increase representation," assures Bauza, who adds that organizations like the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) and corporations such as Walmart must work together to create these types of opportunities and advocacy efforts for Hispanics. "The more you can influence and empower, the more success you are going to have. But you can't do it alone, this is a group fight and it requires having the desire and ability to promote Latinos in the workplace."
For their part, Hispanics can be leaders in Corporate America if they work hard and follow their dreams, says Bauza. "You have to love what you do. If you love what you do, you're going to do well," she says adding that building relationships and networking are also keys to success. "Keep in touch with those you have met on the way because you never know when you are going to need them."
On the other hand, Bauza believes in the power of helping others and striving for positive change.
