(6) AT&T, (7) Accenture, (8) General Motors Company, (9) United Technologies Corporation, (10), New York Life, (11) PepsiCo, Inc., (12) Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, (13) Intel Corporation, (14) JPMorgan Chase & Co., and (15) Nationwide.

“We congratulate FCA US on the outstanding career advancement opportunities it continues to provide its employees,” said Robert Bard, President & 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.”

According to Palese, the list debuted in 1998, and was a project that began 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,” Palese explains.
