Intuit TurboTax, QuickBooks and Mailchimp bring together the hispanic community to celebrate and financially empower individuals and entrepreneurs

Intuit (Nasdaq: INTU), the global financial technology platform that makes TurboTax , Credit Karma , QuickBooks , and Mailchimp , today announces a month of special programming and resources to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. The series begins with a roundtable conversation of Hispanic business leaders including actor, author, and philanthropist George Lopez and award-winning journalist Soledad O'Brien. Intuit's "Unidos We Grow" campaign highlights the financial opportunities Hispanic consumers, businesses, and communities have to power their prosperity.

In today's economy, many Latinos in the United States are struggling with inflation identified as the number one barrier to achieving financial goals, according to a recent survey by Intuit QuickBooks . Hispanic and Latino entrepreneurs are quick to recognize the contributions of both their families and communities to their success: 95% give credit to their family for their career success, and 75% have also benefited from the support of their local community. Despite the impact of inflation, an overwhelming majority (91%) of Latino consumers are able to achieve some or all of their long-term financial goals. This percentage is even higher among Latino business owners, with 96% saying they are able to achieve some or all of their business goals. Still, there are challenges for Latino consumers and business owners. Overall, 62% of Latinos surveyed would benefit from more help to achieve their financial goals and just 7% feel they have enough money to plan for retirement.

"Building equity for the Latino and Hispanic community in the US remains a key priority for Intuit. In recent years, we've strengthened our Latino talent pipeline as well as engagement and retention efforts, and doubled down on our investment in communities and school districts with high representation of Latinos," said Humera Shahid, VP of Talent Acquisition and Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer at Intuit. "This Hispanic Heritage month, we aim to go above and beyond, thinking creatively across all our brands – including TurboTax, QuickBooks and Mailchimp – to create equity and build community for the Latino community at large."
