For 13th Straight Year, Exchange Named Top 50 Employer for Latinas

DALLAS – LATINA Style magazine has named the Army & Air Force Exchange Service one of the 50 best companies for Latinas to work for the 13th year in a row, a reflection of the commitment to diversity and inclusion at the Department of Defense’s largest retailer.

The LATINA Style 50 Report focuses on promotions, recruitment and retention for Latinas; the number of Latina employees at the company; and Veteran and military personnel programs. The report recognizes companies who find diversity and inclusion essential to their success.

Latinas make up 12% of the Exchange’s workforce.

“The Exchange champions the diversity of its workforce and values inclusiveness,” said President and Chief Merchandising Officer Ana Middleton, the Exchange’s highest-ranking Latina woman. “Our Nation’s military is made up of service members from all backgrounds, and having a diverse team ready to serve Soldiers, Airmen and their families is critical to the relevancy of the Exchange benefit.”

The Exchange is committed to a corporate culture where all ages, races, colors, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, abilities and backgrounds are treated with dignity and respect.
