The LATINA Style 50 Report Over 20 years ago, Anna Maria Arias, Founder of LATINA Style Magazine, began her quest to explore deeper into the business world and bring forth powerful and useful information on the increasing importance of recruiting professional Latinas. Acknowledging the need to shed light on the issue, with the assistance of the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and national Hispanic organizations, a comprehensive survey was created and sent to the Fortune 1000 companies. The reports highlights each company’s leadership programs, employee benefits and Latina representation in senior positions. Thousands of companies have been evaluated to date and every year LATINA Style publishes its findings to bring the LATINA Style 50 Report, that recognizes the Top 50 Companies for Latinas to Work for in the U.S. The LATINA Style 50 Report recognizes companies, whose mission of diversity and inclusion has been reflected in the way they recruit, promote, provide benefits, and create programs for the betterment of their employees but most specifically Latina professionals.latina50.latinastyle.com/

The LATINA Style HERO Initiative: LATINA Style in partnership with the Anna Maria Arias Foundation launched in 2012 a four-city tour to help military veterans and transitional active duty members reintegrate and assimilate into Corporate America. The skills and talents developed in the military service are highly desirable in the civilian workplace. Women and men with military experience bring a wealth of transferable capabilities that will strengthen the competitive edge of companies taking full advantage of them. While each branch of the military has their respective Transition Assistance Programs and processes, many transitioning leaders face the obstacle of having their capabilities being fully understood in the corporate arena. The sessions include expert speakers from the private and military sector leaders addressing some of the most significant issues facing transitioning personnel. Participants learn what corporations are actively seeking and hiring veterans as well as information on writing a resume in corporate language, interview tips, job boards and postings, the power of social media and networking.
