Washington, D.C., August 27, 2014 – LATINA Style Inc., the premier company addressing the needs of the Latina professional and business owner in the U.S., proudly announces the LATINA Style 50 Report for 2014. Now in its 17th year, the 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 magazine 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. Evaluations for the 2014 annual report are based on 2013 data.

“The LATINA Style 50 Report is the most exhaustive study of corporate America’s policies and opportunities for Latinas in the workplace. The companies listed on the report are the ones that truly are the best places for Latina professionals to work,” says Robert E. Bard, president and CEO of LATINA Style, Inc. “This year, we are happy to announce Accenture as our ‘Company of the Year.’ Accenture has been steadily rising up the list through the past years. Their ascension reflects a continued commitment straight from the top and throughout the company. Congratulations!”

Combining unparalleled experience, comprehensive capabilities across all industries and business functions, and extensive research on the world’s most successful companies, Accenture collaborates with clients to help them become high-performance businesses and governments.
