LATINA Style Magazine Announces the 2012 LATINA Style 50 Report - The 50 Best Companies for Latinas to Work for in the U.S. Comcast Corporation is the 2012 LATINA Style 50 Company of the Year.
Sept. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Washington, D.C., September 4, 2012 — LATINA Style Magazine proudly announces the LATINA Style 50 Report for 2012. Now in its 15th 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.

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, Latina retention, mentoring programs, educational opportunities, alternative work policies, employee benefits, women’s issues, job retraining, affinity groups, and Hispanic relations. This year, we also added new categories that display which companies have a dedicated program to supplier diversity and have increased their Latina population. Evaluations for the 2012 annual report were based on 2011 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 assist them in identifying the companies that will provide them with the best opportunities to succeed. Latinas can be reassured that the LATINA Style 50 Report provides them with the best view of where they should look for a job.”

Comcast Corporation, headquartered in Philadelphia, is the “2012 Company of the Year.” Comcast Corporation is one of the world’s leading media, entertainment and communications companies. It is principally involved in the operation of cable systems through Comcast Cable and in the development, production, and distribution of entertainment, news, sports, and other content for global audiences through NBCUniversal.

“We are honored to be recognized by LATINA Style as the “2012 Company of the Year.” Comcast and NBCUniversal’s longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion in our governance, workforce, procurement, programming, and community investment is a keystone to our success,” said Maria G. Arias, Executive Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Comcast Corporation.  “Our culture is built upon treating each other withfairness, respect and inclusion, and we believe that is the foundation for creating a best-in-class model for diversity and inclusion within the entertainment and technology industry.”
