Liberty Tax Named “Best of the Best” by Hispanic Network Magazine
Liberty Tax Service is being recognized for the strides we have made in our diversity efforts by Hispanic Network Magazine (HNM). Results of HNM’s much-anticipated 2013 survey of the Nation's Best of the Best Top Diversity Employers for Hispanics were released in their August issue.
“It is an honor to be awarded such a prestigious title for our unwavering efforts. Recognizing and supporting the Latino community is a mission we consciously keep in the forefront of our efforts here at Liberty Tax,” stated Martee Pierson, Director of Diversity Programs, Una Familia Sin Fronteras and Liberty Tax. “We have made great connections and created a vast network of contributors for our national movement to offer new opportunities the Latino communities.”
One of Liberty Tax’s major contributions to the Hispanic community is Una Familia Sin Fronteras Foundation, an initiative which focuses on the needs of Latinos nationwide. Liberty Tax plays a major role in developing and supporting education opportunities for Hispanic immigrants. The goal is to provide information that will help the Hispanic communities realize that there are options in their lives that will ultimately lead to empowerment, and finally the self-esteem needed to move forward, “thriving” instead of just “surviving.” The Una Familia Sin Fronteras Foundation provides educational courses that include information on the ITIN (tax ID), taxes in general, how to start a small business, the importance of education for your children, and various other life skills workshops free-of-charge across the United States through over 400 partnerships that includes the White House Initiative on Education Excellence, the U.S. Department of Education, school districts, churches, libraries, universities, churches, ESL and GED schools, IME (Institute of Mexicans in the Exterior) and other Consulates servicing the Latino community.
