GM’s Hispanic Initiative Team (GM HIT) was recognized last month as the #1 employee resource group (ERG) of the year by LATINAStyle. The company was also ranked in the top 12 best companies for Latinas in the United States.

The LATINAStyle 50 Report is one of the most respected national rankings of companies based on policies and practices promoting the needs and aspirations of Latinas in the workplace. The award ceremonies took place during the 18th Annual LATINAStyle 50 Awards and Diversity Leaders Conference on Feb. 4, 2016, in Washington, D.C.

“GM is proud to once again receive this recognition from LATINAStyle,” said GM Global Chief Diversity Officer Ken Barrett. “Being the number one Hispanic employee resource group in the nation is a true testament to the commitment of GM’s Hispanic Initiative Team. Their direct contributions and hands-on leadership helped drive diversity forward and continue to position GM as an industry leader.”

GM has been proudly recognized 15 times by LATINAStyle as a top 50 workplace for Latinas and this year marks the first time GM has received the top ERG award. LATINAStyle reports results from an extensive search and evaluation of prominent U.S. companies on matters important to the publication’s readers, including career opportunities, retention, employee benefits, mentoring, and educational opportunities.
