The editors of LATINA Style magazine have selected Stellantis as one of the top 50 companies for Latinas to work for in the United States in 2020. The LATINA Style 2020 award marks the 17th year the company has been included since the benchmark was established in 1998.

At a time when Latinas have been hit hard by the health and economic crisis resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, hearing from companies like Stellantis restores some faith in humanity.

In 2020, the company ranked No. 15 overall and was the highest-rated automaker in the 2020 report, which will appear in the magazine’s September issue.

Stellantis is the top-ranked automaker in the 2020 report, which is considered the most respected assessment of U.S. companies’ employment opportunities and policies related to Latina women.

The LATINA Style Top 50 (LS50) report highlights companies that strive for diverse hiring and promotion initiatives, including companies with programs to hire veterans and military personnel.

“Stellantis diversity and inclusion efforts are central to our business strategy and our ability to attract and retain top talent,” said Lottie Holland, Director – Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement, Stellantis-North America. “Our consistent performance over several decades on this important benchmark reflects our commitment to respecting and fully engaging all people and cultures represented in our company’s vibrant multicultural mosaic.”

LATINA Style magazine began the LS50 Report as “a quest to explore deeper into the business world and bring forth powerful and useful information on the growing importance of recruiting professional Latinas.”

In 1997, with the help of the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and national Hispanic organizations, the magazine developed a comprehensive survey sent annually to Fortune 1000 companies. The LS50 Report, the result of that annual survey process, highlights the leadership programs, employee benefits, and representation of Latinas in leadership positions at each selected company.

The report is distributed to Hispanic professional and civic organizations, national women’s organizations, colleges, and universities, and all U.S. Congress members, the White House, Cabinet members, and military and veterans organizations. The report is also distributed at major Hispanic and recruiting conferences.

“When I came from Mexico and joined the company in 2015, I joined the Latins in Connection (LinC) Business Resource Group and benefited from their programs and support of our employees,” said Olivia Sanchez Worley, Cost Management Program Manager at Stellantis and President of the Latins in Connection Business Resource Group. “We have amazing Latinas working for our company and volunteering for LinC, and it is very gratifying that the company consistently earns this prestigious recognition from LATINA Style.”
