(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Detroit, MI – February 27, 2012 – The U.S. Hispanic Leadership Institute, one of the most powerful nationally and internationally recognized Latino organizations in the country, will present the “Corporate Visionary Award” to Alma Guajardo-Crossley, Director of Diversity Initiatives for General Motors, tonight during the Corporate and Community Leadership Awards Dinner at the 30th National Conference of the United States Hispanic Leadership Institute being held in Chicago.

"We are pleased to present this award to General Motors for its dedication to diversity and inclusion and for its long history of commitment to investing time, energy and resources towards education and the advancement of the Latinos," said Dr. Juan Andrade, Jr., President of USHLI. “For years, Alma has championed and expanded GM’s impressive agenda of support for the Hispanic community”.
The award is presented to those who have achieved success as corporate leaders and whose work influences progress and positively impacts Latinos.
“It is an honor to be recognized by USHLI,” said Guajardo-Crossley. “At GM we know that Latinos are critical to our success. We are proud to partner with USHLI in the effort to provide leadership empowerment opportunities to Hispanic youth,” she added.
