Prudential Financial Ranks 8th Among LATINA Style Top 50 Companies

Stocks in this article: PRU

Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU) announced today that it was named by LATINA Style Magazine as one of the top 50 companies for Latinas in the United States. Prudential earned the number eight spot on the magazine’s annual list of best companies in recognition of its supplier diversity program and of the use of the firm’s employee resource group to retain Latinos within the company and the increase in Latina employees, including at the senior level. Prudential has ranked on LATINA Style’s Top 50 report for 16 consecutive years.

“This award is a testament to our commitment to diversity and, equally as important, to inclusion,” said Michele C. Green, vice president and chief diversity officer for Prudential Financial. “We are proud to have earned a top 10 spot on such a prestigious list again, and look forward to doing the work required to stay on the list.”

Prudential accepted the award during the 16 th Annual LATINA  Style 50 Award & Diversity Leaders Conference in early February. During the conference, Yanela Frias, vice president and chief financial officer for Prudential Annuities, shared insights on preparing Latinas to take over executive roles.

“Prudential consistently offers challenging and rewarding career opportunities,” Frias shared. “I’ve always felt very supported whether through formal mentoring relationships, or important networks like our business resource group, the Hispanic Heritage Network.”

In addition to providing professional development opportunities for employees, Prudential’s Hispanic Heritage Network partners with the company on numerous business initiatives, including the recent release of the Hispanic American Financial Experience survey. Released in January, the survey uncovers the financial attitudes, behaviors and priorities among Hispanic Americans. HHN was formed in 1993 and is one of the firm’s six business resource groups.

“Being named to the LATINA Style 50 is a validation of our efforts to attract, develop and retain a diverse workforce, and to forge strong partnerships within the nation’s fastest growing population,” Green said.
