Date:8/25/2009

COLUMBUS, Ga., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac today announced that it has been named a LATINA Style Top 50 company by LATINA Style Magazine in the publication's annual LATINA Style 50 report. The report is distributed to Hispanic professional and civic organizations, national women's organizations, more than 2,000 colleges and universities, members of congress and the White House. LATINA Style surveyed more than 800 companies for this study. The list appears in LATINA Style's August issue.

"We are proud to be recognized as a Top 50 Company by LATINA Style magazine and to have made this elite list after more than 800 companies were surveyed," Aflac chairman and CEO Dan Amos said. "We embrace our commitment to diversity because we know that in a market as diverse as America, it makes us a stronger company."

Companies are evaluated based on issues that LATINA Style readers identified as most important to them in the workplace. 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 Hispanic relations. Evaluations for the 2009 annual report were based on 2008 data.

The LATINA Style 50 companies will be honored on February 4, 2010, during LATINA Style's awards ceremony and Diversity Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C. The companies will also be recognized at an exclusive awards reception at the White House.
