Comcast, the nation's leading provider of cable, entertainment and communications products and services, was named to Latina Style Magazine's "Latina Style 50." Now in its 10th year, Latina Style recognizes the 50 Best Companies for Latinas to work for in the U.S.
"It is an honor to be recognized for our commitment to diversity by the leading magazine for Latinas in the country," said Comcast Executive Vice President David L. Cohen. "Inclusion in the Latina Style 50 is confirmation that our hard work and efforts in recruiting and retaining a multicultural workforce is making Comcast a stronger company."
Latina Style's questionnaire focused on issues that readers identified as most important to them in the workplace. Among the principal areas of evaluation were: number of Latina executives, mentoring programs, Latina board members, educational opportunities, alternative work policies, dependent/child care support, employee benefits, women's issues, job retraining, affinity groups and Hispanic relations.
The number of Hispanic women working in the U.S. workforce exceeds 7.5 million and the number continues to rise.
"As the only national Latina publication focusing on the needs and aspirations of professional Latinas, we have a duty to keep Hispanic women informed about corporate America's best employment practices," says President and CEO of Latina Style Magazine, Robert E. Bard.
For two years in a row, Comcast has been recognized as one of the "Top 60 Companies for Hispanics" by Hispanic Business Magazine, and earlier this year, Comcast was honored with the "Corporate Leadership Award" by the Hispanic Federation and named to DiversityInc magazine's Top 50 Corporations for Diversity. In addition, Comcast has been recognized by Black Enterprise Magazine's "40 Best Companies for Diversity," Essence Magazine's "25 Great Places to Work" and Black MBA Magazine's "Top 50 Companies for Black MBAs to Work."
Comcast's overall commitment to diversity is focused in four key areas: attracting and retaining a multicultural workforce, developing a diverse supplier group, offering a wide selection of multicultural programming and pledging significant community investments.
