Kaiser Permanente Named 2009 Company of the Year by LATINA Style Magazine
Date:8/24/2009

OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente has been ranked No. 1 by LATINA Style magazine on the publication's list of the 50 Best Companies for Latinas to Work for in the United States.

The LATINA Style survey, now in its 12th year, is an annual evaluation of corporate America's appreciation for the value of diversity in the workplace, and identifies the corporations in the United States that are providing the best career opportunities for Latinas. Kaiser Permanente was among 800 organizations included in the extensive research.

"It's an honor to be recognized by LATINA Style," said Ronald Knox, senior vice president and chief diversity officer at Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. "To deliver the kind of member experience needed to remain a leader in an increasingly competitive and diverse marketplace, our employees must reflect the communities we serve. At Kaiser Permanente, understanding our members' needs and speaking their languages is simply how we do business."

Companies are evaluated based on workplace issues that LATINA Style readers identified as most important to them. Among the principal areas of evaluation are: 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 Latina relations.

The LATINA Style 50 Companies will be honored on Feb. 4, 2010, during LATINA Style's Awards Ceremony & Diversity Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C., and recognized at an exclusive awards reception at the White House.

Today, Kaiser Permanente's employee and physician workforce of 181,000 is 74 percent female and 56 percent people of color, mirroring and exceeding the racial, ethnic and gender composition of
