The Company has been recognized by DiversityInc as a Top 50 Company for Diversity, named one of FORTUNE Magazine's Most Admired Companies, named to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the first time, and was recognized as a 2014 Silver Class Sustainability Leader in RobecoSAM's annual Sustainability Yearbook, and a recipient of the National Business Group on Health Award for Innovation in Reducing Health Care Disparities in 2011. Additionally, the Company was named among the Top 50 Companies by LATINA Style and was recognized by NAFE (National Association for Female Executives) as one of the Top 50 Companies for Executive Women.
