MGM MIRAGE Draws Hispanic Praise
LAS VEAGS, NV, September 29, 2006. In recognition of the company's outreach to the Hispanic community, Latin Business magazine has recently named MGM MIRAGE to the third annual "2006 Corporate Diversity Honor Roll."
MGM MIRAGE, one of 21 recognized companies, is the only gaming company on the list. Latin Business evaluated more than 80 companies which had received diversity recognition from other publications and organizations in order to determine this year's "Honor Roll." Companies were surveyed on Hispanic and minority representation at all levels of employment, supplier diversity programs and minority outreach, retention, promotion and marketing efforts.
Also, MGM MIRAGE was recognized as one of the "Top 50 Companies for Hispanics" by Hispanic Business magazine. This marks the second consecutive year that the company was named to the list.
To identify its "Top Companies," Hispanic Business gathered information from all Fortune 500 companies, American subsidiaries of Global 500 companies and other large U.S. public and private corporations. Selected companies were chosen based on criteria including Hispanic and minority representation on the board of directors and executive-level management; minority recruitment efforts; employee retention and promotion programs; marketing and community outreach; and supplier diversity programs.
