2023 LATINO Equity 100
Our annual list of the best places to work for Latinos
Describing Diversity has changed in the fifteen years since LATINO Magazine was founded. Over the years, it became Diversity&Inclusion, and now it’s Diversity, Equity&Inclusion (DEI). Equity implies that some employees might have built-in advantages in rising up the corporate ladder, while others need additional resources and training. This is true for Latinos as well as other groups, and we must be part of this conversation to address these inequalities. Each year, we list the best places to work for Latinos in corporate America. As in 2022, we believe best practices in DEI is a good measure. But it’s a strong commitment to Equity that the companies on our list share in common.
With respect to our methodology, there was no survey. Nominations were submitted both formally and informally by Latino nonprofits and community organizations as well as our readers, partners and stakeholders. The listing, which appears alphabetically, was compiled by the editors of LATINO from these nominations based upon our own research and information gathering. Those companies profiled are representative of their industries and serve as corporate role models.
This year, we contacted all the companies on our initial list of 100. Some asked whether there was a cost involved in being included, citing negative experiences with other such lists. Needless to say, there was not. If we were unable to reach the appropriate individual at a company (such as the Chief Diversity Officer) to verify our research, we did not include it. For these reasons, we’ve listed less than we intended.
In the following pages, then, we present our 2023 LATINO Equity 100. Many thanks to all those who helped us in this effort. The companies listed can be seen in our digital edition at http://digitaledition.qwinc.com/publication/?m=63058&i=790766&p=50&ver=html5.
