Deloitte Named a Top Ten Company for Multicultural Women in 2012 by Working Mother Magazine

NEW YORK, May 21, 2012 – For the seventh consecutive year, Working Mother magazine has named Deloitte one of the top ten employers in the United States for multicultural women.  The ranking, now in its tenth year, recognizes 25 U.S. organizations based on representation; hiring, attrition and promotion rates; recruitment, retention and advancement; and company culture. 

“At Deloitte we believe our ability to attract and develop multicultural women is critical to delivering superior performance and creating outstanding value for our clients,” said Deborah L. DeHaas, chief inclusion officer, Deloitte LLP. “We all have something unique to contribute to our success; a diverse workforce brings to the table the skills, knowledge and viewpoints we need to serve our clients, learn from one another, and grow in an increasingly competitive and global marketplace.  That’s why Deloitte is focused on fostering a culture where all of our professionals have the opportunity to reach their potential and thrive as leaders.”

In supporting its multicultural women, Deloitte employs formal leadership development programs that offer strategic assignments and career sponsorship. These include:

  • Navigation to Excellence – pairing high-performing women of color at the manager and senior manager levels with senior leaders in one-on-one sponsorship relationships to prepare them for critical roles at Deloitte.  Sponsor leaders also undergo training to help them better understand, address the needs of, and provide feedback to people with backgrounds different from theirs.
  • Emerging Leader Development Program – preparing high-performing minority managers and senior managers for the next stage in their careers. Working individually with a career coach, participants define goals, create career plans and develop strategies to execute them.  Each is paired with an internal Deloitte sponsor who serves as an advocate to help participants get to the next step in their careers.  More than 500 professionals have been through the program, and over 70 of them now serve in partner, principal or director roles at Deloitte.

“The Best Companies for Multicultural Women value the power of a diverse workforce and work hard to make sure their pipelines are filled with talented women of color,” says Jennifer Owens, director of the Working Mother Research Institute. “Even beyond mentoring and networking programs, these companies are reaching out to professional and school groups and sponsoring recruitment events to attract the best multicultural women talent.”

Deloitte will share these and other best practices at Working Mother’s 12th annual Multicultural Women’s National Conference in July.  The conference will feature top executives, important research and networking opportunities to support more than 800 multicultural women in becoming tomorrow’s leaders.  Deloitte has been a premier sponsor since its inception.  Maritza Gomez Montiel, deputy CEO and vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, will serve as a co-chair and Tonie Leatherberry, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, will lead a breakout session.  

The complete 2012 Best Companies for Multicultural Women special report appears in the June/July issue of Working Mother and on www.workingmother.com

In addition to the 2012 Working Mother Top Companies for Multicultural Women list, Deloitte has been recognized for its record of diversity and inclusion by other organizations, including:

  • 2012 DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity; on list for the 9th year
  • Fortune magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” for the 13th year
  •  ”2011 Working Mother 100 Best Companies” top 10 for the third year, its 18th consecutive year on the list
  • 2011 Company of the Year in the LATINA Style 50 Report
  • Human Rights Campaign’s “Best Places to Work,” earning a 100 percent rating on its Corporate Equality Index (CEI)

Niche Media Founder and Former CEO Taps Gayle Perry Sobel for New Venture DU JOUR Magazine

NEW YORK, May 17, 2012 – Jason Binn, founder and former CEO of Niche Media, the leading publisher of luxury magazines nationwide including Ocean Drive, Hamptons, Gotham, Los Angeles Confidential, Aspen Peak, Michigan Avenue, and Capitol File, announces the appointment of Gayle Perry Sobel, the former Director, European Fashion for Conde Nast Digital, as Executive Director of his latest venture – DU JOUR – effective immediately.

After six years on the client side as Media Director at both Donna Karan and Calvin Klein, Perry Sobel made her name in publishing first at Talk magazine and then at GQ acting as Luxury Director for both.  In late 2005, she joined Style.com as its Fashion and Luxury Development Director.  Over her five years there, she was instrumental in convincing print-minded advertisers the importance of digital advertising and made Style.com  a top media buy.  Initially working with both American and European luxury brands, the business grew so large that by 2007, she focused her attention entirely on European fashion.  In 2010, that division grew 180%.  In 2011, she was given responsibility for European Fashion for all of Conde Nast‘s digital titles.   She then took a maternity leave, and is now ready to get back to the business she loves to take on a great new challenge.

According to Binn, “Gayle’s experience in helping luxury brands embrace digital media, as well as her solid grounding in print, will be an invaluable asset to our team.  Her record for growth is outstanding, and I am excited to have her work with our team to build DU JOUR‘s multi-tier marketing platform.”

On the editorial side, Sydney Wasserman has also been announced as Market Editor.  Most recently, Wasserman held the role of fashion editor at ELLE.com  where she conceptualized and executed all fashion, shopping, personal style and runway content for the site.  Prior to that, she worked under costume designer Patricia Field, sourcing fashion for the main actors and background ensemble for Sex and the City 2.  She started her career as Fashion Assistant at Interview Magazine, working under Ingrid Sischy, Karl Templer, Fabien Baron and Joe McKenna.

Perry Sobel and Wasserman are the latest addition to a group of high-profile media executives comprising Binn’s dream team for DU JOUR.  On the publishing side, Perry Sobel joins Alan Katz – who brings high-level credentials from career highlights that include EVP, Business Development of Direct Brands, VP/Publisher of Vanity Fair, Founding Publisher of Cargo and Publisher of New York Magazine – and Cindy Lewis, an entrepreneur and media executive, who previously founded Create Lucrative Relationships, and honed her retail, fashion and luxury experience over 14 years at Hearst where she served as VP/Publisher of Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar and SHOP etc.  Wasserman will report to Keith Pollock, formerly Editorial Director of Elle.com, and Nicole Vecchiarelli, formerly Senior Editor of InStyle, who will serve as Co-Editors-in-Chief.  The all-star cast also includes Caryn Whitman, most recently CFO of Guardian News & Media LLC, the US subsidiary of the UK newspaper giant, The Guardian, (guardian.co.uk), but previously Binn’s partner at Niche Media where she took the company to market and ultimately sold it for a record price in 2007, who will serve as Chief Financial Officer.  Max McDonnell, former CEO of Lonnymag.com who revolutionized click-to-buy, will serve as Associate VP of Product Development, and Brandon Ralph from digital shop Code & Theory, will all work directly under Jason Binn as CEO/Publisher. 

This highly talented senior leadership team will lead the launch of DU JOUR, noteworthy for its unique hybrid approach. As a national magazine with targeted local content, DU JOUR will seamlessly connect digital and print media, bridging the gap between content and commerce. DU JOUR will be an ABC-audited publication. “DU JOUR will reach over three million of the most affluent online Gilt consumers, coupled with a quarterly, oversized, glossy print magazine with 250,000 print copies available by subscription and an additional 15,000 copies prominently displayed at premium newsstands throughout DU JOUR markets.

DU JOUR will focus on the top US markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Las Vegas, and San Francisco, where roughly 80% of the sales of all luxury products and services are located, in addition to seasonal regions, like the Hamptons, Aspen, and Sun Valley. Editorial will cover the worlds of fashion, travel, fine dining, gourmet, beauty, night life, jewelry, accessories, watches, art, entertainment, business, culture, home, real estate, entertaining, health, spirits, beverages, technology, finance, sports, and politics — ultimately shaping the lifestyle that ties these categories together.

The magazine will target transactional readers who also meet five of the seven following qualifiers: Average net worth of $5 million+; liquid assets over $1 million; average home values in excess of $1.5 million; average income in excess of $250,000; annual offline transactional luxury purchases of $100,000+; $10,000+ online high-end purchases annually; annual philanthropic donations over $10,000.

Liberty Magazine, subtitled “A Weekly for Everybody,” was a general interest magazine founded in 1924 by Joseph Patterson, publisher of the New York Daily News, and Robert McCormick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune and often regarded as the world’s greatest publisher. The magazine’s high-quality and originality of art, stories and features led to an ongoing circulation of 3 million weekly.

Wells, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Mahatma Ghandi, Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, Babe Ruth and many more.

Gale licensed the magazine’s content from the Liberty Library Corporation, owned by Robert Whiteman, who has collected and organized the content over many years.

The Liberty Magazine archive includes content from almost all genres – human interest stories, mysteries, westerns, love stories, humor stories, biographies and autobiographies of the rich and powerful – both famous and infamous, and some of the greatest World I & II stories.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxina) Celebrates 10-year Anniversary Searching For "Women Just Like You" To Be Featured In An Advertisement In PEOPLE® Magazine

IRVINE, Calif., April 19, 2012 — Ten years ago, BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in people ages 18-65.  In celebration of the millions of women who have been treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic over the past decade, BOTOX® Cosmetic and PEOPLE® magazine, in a marketing campaign, are searching for “Women Just Like You” who put their best face forward every day at work, at home and in their community.

Women are invited to go to www.WomenJustLikeYou.com to share their – or their friend’s – personal story about the inspiring things they do for the people in their lives or in their communities, such as how they:

  • Help improve the health of themselves or others;
  • Do a job that makes an impact on their industry or in their community;
  • Support a cause or make a contribution to their own community; or
  • Promote healthy relationships with others or on behalf of others. 

“The ‘Women Just Like You‘ campaign celebrates women who have made a positive impact on their friends, family and community,” said Lela Rose, American Fashion Designer and spokesperson for the campaign.  “My work celebrates the essence of being a woman through design that is feminine and approachable. I truly enjoy helping the woman who wears my designs to look her best while she does the things that matter to her the most.”  Rose also shares that she has received BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments from a physician for nearly a decade.

“In 2002, an advertisement for BOTOX® Cosmetic first appeared in PEOPLE® Magazine’s World Most Beautiful issue,” said Colleen McKenna, Senior Marketing Director, Allergan Medical.  “Over the past decade, approximately 11 million BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments have been administered and millions of women have received real, noticeable results.  We are celebrating this milestone by kicking off our ‘Women Just Like You‘ campaign in an ad in the 2012 World’s Most Beautiful issue of PEOPLE® magazine on newsstands next week.”

Five “Women Just Like You” will be selected by representatives of the PEOPLE® magazine marketing team and will win a trip for a photo shoot where they will be styled by Lela Rose and have a professional hair and make-up team prepare them for a photo shoot with photographer Dorian Caster, whose work has appeared in PEOPLE® magazine.  Their photos and stories will appear in a “Women Just Like You” ad in the “Best & Worst Dressed” issue of PEOPLE® magazine available on newsstands September 14, 2012.

“Women Just Like You” Contest Terms

Contest begins at 12:00:01 a.m. EST 4/19/12 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. EST 6/8/12. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 years of age or older (19 if AL or NE, 21 if MS) at time of entry.

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) Important Information

Indication
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

BOTOX® Cosmetic may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any of these problems any time (hours to weeks) after injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic:

  • Problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing, due to weakening of associated muscles, can be severe and result in loss of
    life. You are at the highest risk if these problems are pre-existing before injection. Swallowing problems may last for several months

  • Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice (dysphonia), trouble saying words clearly (dysarthria), loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities

The dose of BOTOX® Cosmetic is not the same as, or comparable to, another botulinum toxin product. There has not been a confirmed serious case of spread of toxin effect when BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used at the recommended dose to treat frown lines.

Serious and/or immediate allergic reactions have been reported. They include: itching, rash, red itchy welts, wheezing, asthma symptoms, or dizziness or feeling faint. Tell your doctor or get medical help right away if you are wheezing or have asthma symptoms, or if you become dizzy or faint.

Do not take BOTOX® Cosmetic if you: are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic (see Medication Guide for ingredients); had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA); have a skin infection at the planned injection site.

Tell your doctor about all your muscle or nerve conditions, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig‘s disease), myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome, as you may be at increased risk of serious side effects including severe dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) and respiratory compromise (difficulty breathing) from typical doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including: plans to have surgery; had surgery on your face; weakness of forehead muscles, such as trouble raising your eyebrows; drooping eyelids; any other abnormal facial change; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if BOTOX® Cosmetic can harm your unborn baby); are breast-feeding or plan to breast-feed (it is not known if BOTOX® Cosmetic passes into breast milk).

Human albumin and spread of viral diseases. BOTOX® Cosmetic contains albumin, a protein component of human blood. The potential risk of spreading viral diseases [eg Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD)] via human serum albumin is extremely rare. No cases of viral diseases or CJD have ever been reported in association with human serum albumin.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Using BOTOX® Cosmetic with certain other medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines until you have told your doctor that you have received BOTOX® Cosmetic in the past.

Especially tell your doctor if you: have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last 4 months; have received injections of botulinum toxin, such as Myobloc®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® in the past (be sure your doctor knows exactly which product you received); have recently received an antibiotic by injection; take muscle relaxants; take an allergy or cold medicine; or take a sleep medicine.

Other side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic include: dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, neck pain, and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight, drooping eyelids, swelling of your eyelids, and dry eyes.

For more information refer to the Medication Guide or talk with your doctor. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
