Latina Style Announces Conference Date

 WASHINGTON -- LATINA Style will host the 13th Annual LATINA Style 50 Awards & Diversity Leaders Conference on Thursday, February 3, 2011 from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center located at 775 12th Street NW, Washington, DC 20005.

In its eighth year, the conference will present powerful workshops discussing issues relating to Latinas in corporate America, and feature prominent diversity leaders from the companies selected to the 2010 LATINA Style 50 Report (LS50). This year LATINA Style will feature three exciting panels "LATINA Executives of the Year: Nurturing, Developing and Leading," "Empowering the Employee Resource / Business Resource Groups," and "DIVERSITY Roundtable: Diversity as a Business Imperative."

During the LS 50 Awards Luncheon, Marriott International, Inc., based in Bethesda, Maryland will be honored as the 2010 Company of the Year. Marriott is one of America's premiere operators of hotels and lodging facilities. Founded in 1927, the company now has 18 brands that offer various types of lodging options to a range of customer segments. Marriott currently welcomes guests at more than 3,400 properties in nearly 70 countries and territories.

LATINA Style also congratulates the LATINA Executive of the Year for 2010; highlighting individual Latina achievement at the corporate level. This year, more than 300 nominations were submitted for women executives across many different industries. The Top 5 Latina Executives stood out based on their excellence in corporate leadership, commitment to community involvement, and significant business impact within their respective corporations. GISEL RUIZ of Wal-Mart Selected as LATINA Executive of the Year 2010; following the top five are: DAGMAR ROSA-BJORKESON, Vice President, Head of the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Business Unit, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation; VIRGINIA GONZALES, CPCU, State Farm Corporate Headquarters; SUSAN SANTIAGO, Vice President of Food & Beverage, Hyatt Hotels Corporation; and MINA PACHECO NAZEMI, Principal Customized Fund Investment Group, Credit Suisse.
