MINNEAPOLIS – April 17, 2014 – Cargill is featured among 100 U.S.-based companies for providing the most opportunities for Latinos in LATINO Magazine’s annual “LATINO 100” list. The list, which was compiled based on nominations by Latino nonprofits and community organizations, as well as LATINO readers, partners and stakeholders, provides a perspective on corporate support for the Latino community in areas of philanthropy, workforce diversity, minority business development and governance.
“At Cargill, developing, engaging and retaining diverse talent is how the company achieves its strategic goals and delivers successful business results,” said Mike Fernandez, corporate vice president of Cargill Corporate Affairs. “Hispanic-Latino programs are just one way Cargill leverages the power of its global workforce, and views these diverse perspectives as a source of strength.”
Education remains one of the most important challenges facing Latino communities and companies including Cargill are featured in LATINO because of their strong support for encouraging Latinos to enter the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields.
