The time is AHORA

We’re building a stronger Latinx/Hispanic workforce by attracting, developing and retaining Latinx/Hispanic talent.

There’s a future full of possibilities

The Latinx/Hispanic community brings highly valued skills to our workplace where their unique perspective and values are recognized. Join us and make a remarkable impact.

What we stand for

AHORA recognizes, celebrates and educates others on Latinx/Hispanic culture and helps to advance the Latinx/Hispanic workforce.
AHORA focuses on:

  • Leadership and development
  • Supporting business initiatives
  • Networking
  • Cultural awareness and visibility
  • Community Assistance

AHORA has afforded me the opportunities to support the Latinx/Hispanic communities within and outside of AbbVie. It gives Latinxs and Hispanics a voice and a platform to be heard along with opportunities to allow for professional and personal growth.

Working at AbbVie

True to our vision of building a stronger Latinx/Hispanic workforce, AHORA emphasizes professional development.

Our efforts include: 

  • Hosting “Café con Leche” talks with AbbVie leadership
  • Offering seminars led by university partners
  • Collaborating with organizations such as Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement (HACE) and Latino Leadership Intensive Institute (LLI)
  • Attending and supporting recruitment hiring
  • Supporting new employees with new-hire orientation activities

Making an impact

Community outreach is part of AHORA’s fabric. Supporting the Latinx communities in our own backyard is one of the many ways we help to develop and support the future Latinx/Hispanic workforce.

  • We’ve embedded with Cristo Rey High School in our hometown community of Waukegan, Illinois. We’ve supported students there with internships, mentoring along with career exploration.
  • We support the Waukegan to College partnership through various volunteer efforts including mentorship.
  • We partner with the Consortium of Latino Employee Organizations (CLEO) to find ways to collaborate and benchmark on Latino ERG initiatives and activities along with networking and leadership development workshops.

AHORA is proud to support organizations through the AbbVie Foundation ERG community grant program.
