UP receives top 50 honor for Hispanic female employment policies


On Friday, Union Pacific Railroad announced it was named a 2004 "LATINA Style 50" company for the second-straight year by LATINA Style Magazine.

The seventh annual awards recognize companies that try to meet professional Hispanic women's needs and goals in the workplace. This year, the magazine considered more than 600 companies for the Top 50 honor.

Evaluations are based on a company's number of Latina female board members and executives, mentoring programs, educational opportunities, alternative work policies, dependent/child care support, employee benefits, women's issues, downsize retraining and Hispanic relations.

The magazine chose UP because of its practices and policies that promote
recruitment and advancement opportunities for Hispanic women, as well as the railroad's employee benefits, work/life balance initiatives, and mentoring and leadership training, according to a prepared statement.
