The readers of Diversity/Careers in Engineering & Information Technology magazine have named Chrysler Group to the magazine's "Best Companies For Diversity" list for 2012. This annual reader survey identifies employers of technical professionals in the U.S. the magazine's readers believe "are doing the best work promoting diversity and supporting women and minorities, work/life balance and supplier diversity." This marked the second consecutive year Chrysler Group has earned this recognition.
The readers' choices were based on their perceptions, formed by 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 that included women, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian Americans, veterans, and people with disabilities.
"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 auto maker."
Diversity/Careers will publish the "Best Companies" list in its June/July issue.

"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."
