BNSF Honored as One of 50 Best Companies for Latinas
FORT WORTH, Texas, March 3, 2009:
BNSF Railway was recently recognized by Latina Style magazine as one of the 50 best companies for Latinas to work for in the United States.
"Diversity has evolved into an integral part of BNSF's culture and business climate," McFalls said. "We appreciate the recognition that Latina Style magazine has given BNSF over the years and trust our ongoing commitment to diversity will keep us in their spotlight."
Latina Style surveyed more than 800 prominent U.S. corporations to select their top 50. Companies were evaluated based on issues that Latina Style 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.
