Share this:

Washington, D.C., August 29, 2011—LATINA Style Magazine proudly announces the LATINA Style 50 Report for 2011. Now in its 14th year, this annual report sets the standard for identifying corporations that are providing the best career opportunities for Latinas in the U.S. The LATINA Style 50 Report is the most respected evaluation of corporate America’s career advancement opportunities for Latinas. This year, more than 800 of the most prominent corporations in the United States were included in the extensive search.

Companies responding to LATINA Style‘s questionnaire are evaluated based on issues that LATINA Style readers identified as most important to them in the workplace. Among the principal areas of evaluation are: number of Latina executives, mentoring programs, Latina board members, educational opportunities, alternative work policies, dependent/child care support, employee benefits, women’s issues, job retraining, affinity groups, and Hispanic relations. This year, we also added a new category to our chart and a column that displays which companies have a dedicated program to recruit military personnel. Evaluations for the 2011 annual report were based on 2010 data.

“Every year, since 1998, we have produced the LATINA Style 50 Special Report.  It is the most intensive effort that our company undertakes in ensuring that Latinas and the companies that they work for receive the recognition they deserve,” says Robert E. Bard, President and CEO of LATINA Style, Inc. “Latinas are extremely loyal to the companies they work for, so it is essential that they make the right choice in selecting their employers. It is our job to identify the companies that will provide them with the best opportunities to succeed. Latinas can be reassured that the LATINA Style 50 Report provides them the best view of where they should look for a job.”

Deloitte based in New York is the 2011 Company of the Year. Deloitte is the largest private professional service organization in the world with 45,000 professionals working in the U.S.  The company focuses in four key business areas: audit, financial advisory, tax, and consulting.

“The United States is redefining itself as a nation of diversity more quickly than most people think, with many businesses leading the way. Deloitte is one of those leaders. We are proud to have been chosen Company of the Year by LATINA Style,” states Joe Echevarria, Chief Executive Officer of Deloitte.  “Businesses that take the initiative to address the changes reshaping our society now improve their chances of leading – and winning. Businesses that stand by and do nothing run the risk of being left behind. Deloitte’s commitment is to lead, in all that we do. We know that diversity is good for the clients we serve, for the people we hire, for the communities we call home, and for the owners of our firm. It is a great example of win-win-win-win. Thank you again for choosing Deloitte as your Company of the Year. We are deeply honored.”

An annual awards ceremony honoring the LATINA Style 50 Companies will take place this coming February, during LATINA Style’s Diversity Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C. For more information regarding the LATINA Style 50, please visit the magazine web site at Latina Style.
