Two top Hispanic business magazines continue to recognize The Coca-Cola Company's diversity strategies in the U.S.

Coca-Cola was named among HispanicBusiness Media's HispanicBusiness 2012 Diversity Best Companies, an annual list determined by more than 32 variables that measure a company's commitment to Hispanic hiring, promotion, marketing, philanthropy and supplier diversity. Companies were evaluated on their commitment to Hispanic recruitment, retention and promotion, Board and leadership, marketing and community outreach, and supplier diversity.

The Company also made the LATINA Style 50 Report for 2012. Now in its 15th year, this annual report sets the standard for identifying corporations that are providing the best career opportunities for Latinas in the U.S. Companies were evaluated on a range of workplace issues, including: number of Latina executives, mentoring programs, educational opportunities, alternative work policies, employee benefits, women's issues, job retraining, affinity groups and Hispanic relations. Evaluations for the 2012 report were based on 2011 data. Coca-Cola has made the LATINA Style list every year since 2002.

We are, once again, honored to be recognized for our diversity efforts by LATINA Style magazine and HispanicBusiness Media. This further confirms our diversity strategy and programs are making a positive difference," said Frank Ros, Vice President, Hispanic Strategies. "We are committed to diversity. It's not only the right thing to do... it drives positive business results."

The Company has been included in several other diversity-related rankings in 2012, including: DiversityInc magazine's Top 50 Companies for Diversity, Black Enterprise magazine's 40 Best Companies for Diversity, the Women's Business Enterprise National Council's list of America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises, and DiversityBusiness magazine's Top 50 Organizations for Multicultural Business Opportunities.
