“Hispanic moms are striving to balance their careers and their caregiving responsibilities, but oftentimes this means putting the needs of others before their own to the point of burnout. Brands are uniquely positioned to meet this segment’s specific needs that will allow mothers to replenish themselves both physically and mentally so they can be their best selves. More can be done to encourage equal sharing of household responsibilities, and marketing materials that model more equitable sharing of chores and authentically represent hardships that Hispanics face in their households will resonate with this segment. Importantly, moms are focused on creating stability for their children, so they have everything they need and are set up to succeed.”

– Stefanie Kundakjian, Multicultural Consumer Insights Analyst, Hispanic Focus
