Meet the Hispanic Innovators Behind the Innovation

Our Innovation Series showcases the amazing brand and product developments powered by P&G employees, and we bring you stories about the Innovators Behind the Innovation.

At P&G, we’re problem solvers. And our work is never truly done. Our employees are always learning – always innovating. They turn everyday consumer problems into opportunities that keep pushing the bar. More importantly, they work with others to innovate and find new solutions that help make people’s lives better.

During Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re highlighting several impressive Hispanic and Latinx innovators whose passions, cultural values and diverse perspectives help drive the way we develop and innovate irresistibly superior, category-leading products for generations.

Meet our Innovators!
