The readers of Diversity/Careers in Engineering & Information Technology magazine named Chrysler Group to the magazine's "Best Companies for Diversity" list for 2012, Chrysler announced. It was the second year in a row the automaker picked up the recognition.
"Our success in building a diverse and inclusive work culture is being recognized by a wide range of technical professionals and students who consider Chrysler Group an excellent career destination today and in the future," said Nancy A. Rae, senior vice president, human resources, Chrysler Group LLC.
"We are passionate about continuing the transformation of our company into a vibrant, competitive, diverse, inclusive and innovative global automaker," she added.
The annual reader survey identifies employers of U.S. technical professionals readers believe "are doing the best work promoting diversity and supporting women and minorities, work/life balance and supplier diversity."
The readers' choices were based on their own experiences, their conversations with others and what they'd read about potential employers.

Readers were asked to affirm the status of employers that have been recognized as Best Diversity Companies in previous reader surveys conducted by the magazine, and were given the opportunity to include new employers "whose diversity initiatives were particularly striking."
The readers who took part in the survey were diverse, college-educated technical professionals and students. They included women, African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian-Americans, veterans, and people with disabilities.
Diversity/Careers will publish the Best Companies list in its June/July issue.
"The Best Companies for Diversity Readers Survey indicates how well companies are getting their diversity messages across," said Roberta Renard, the magazine's publisher.
"Chrysler Group can be very proud that Diversity/Careers readers recognize the company's efforts to support diversity and communicate its vision, values and accomplishments with a diverse community comprised of technical professionals and students," she added.
Chrysler Group also has been named to HispanicBusiness's annual Diversity Elite list for implementing strategies to reach more Hispanic customers and to pursue more business with minority- and Hispanic-owned suppliers.
