The editors of Latina Style magazine have named FCA US LLC among the top 12 U.S. companies for Hispanic women to work. The ranking is part of the magazine’s annual Latina Style 50 Report (LS50 Report).
More than 800 companies were evaluated for inclusion on the list. The LS50 Report highlights companies that have a dedicated effort to diverse recruitment and promotion initiatives, including companies that have programs to recruit veterans and military personnel. It is considered “the most respected evaluation of corporate America’s employment opportunities and policies as they pertain to Latinas.”
This is the 15th year the company has been included in the Top 50 Report since the benchmark was established in 1998.
“FCA US diversity and inclusion efforts are central to our business strategy and our ability to attract and retain top talent,” said Barb Pilarski, head of human resources, FCA US LLC. “Our consistent performance on this important benchmark reflects our company’s work environment that respects and fully engages all people and cultures.”
“We congratulate FCA US on the outstanding career advancement opportunities it continues to provide its employees,” said Robert Bard, president and CEO, Latina Style magazine. “Such an outstanding record of performance can only be achieved when there is full commitment throughout the company to diversity and inclusion.”
Latina Style magazine began the LS50 Report as “a quest to explore deeper into the business world and bring forth powerful and useful information on the increasing importance of recruiting professional Latinas.”
In 1997, with the assistance of the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and national Hispanic organizations, the magazine developed a comprehensive survey that is sent annually to Fortune 1000 companies. The LS50 Report, the result of that annual survey process, highlights each selected company’s leadership programs, employee benefits and Latina representation in senior positions.
The report is distributed to Hispanic professional and civic organizations, national women’s organizations, colleges and universities, all members of Congress, the White House, members of the Cabinet, military and veteran’s organizations, as well as at major Hispanic and recruitment conferences.
The full report will be published in the September issue of the magazine and on latinastyle.com.
