 DONNELLY CORPORATION NAMED ONE OF 100 BEST IN AMERICA
 FOR WORKING MOTHERS BY WORKING MOTHER MAGAZINE
 HOLLAND, Mich., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Donnelly Corporation (AMEX: DON) has been named one of the 100 Best Companies for Working Mothers in 1992 by Working Mother magazine.
 The Working Mother 100 are the country's most innovative and advanced firms in support of working families. Published in the October issue of Working Mother, the companies are selected and ranked in categories using the following criteria: pay (compared with the competition), opportunities for women to advance, support for child care (financial, referrals and/or actual care), and family-friendly benefits (job-protected leave for childbirth, flextime, part-time, job sharing, elder care, and others).
 The ceiling that's kept women from advancing to the highest levels of business in this country is starting to show signs of cracking this year, the magazine reports. Examples abound in this seventh annual survey of companies making new efforts to advance women. Support for child care also increased. Several new on-site centers opened; 56 of the 100 companies profiled now have on-site or near-site centers. Many have also spent millions of dollars to improve family child care.
 Donnelly was cited for having a caring corporate culture, an emergency child care program, job sharing, extended leave for childbirth, adoption aid, profit sharing and stock ownership plans, and a number of other innovative programs that support women in the workplace and family life.
 Kay Hubbard, advocate for human resource development, stated:
 "It has long been our belief that providing a supportive environment for the people of our organization improves productivity and thereby improves our ability to be successful. Although many groups have special needs (and we work hard to meet as many as we can), working mothers face unique challenges in the workplace. We are very pleased that we have experienced some success in this area and that Working Mother magazine considers Donnelly to be among the best places to work for mothers."
 Donnelly joins the ranks of many of the nation's largest and most respected corporations in receiving this award, including Allstate, Aetna, American Express, Apple Computer, AT&T, Beth Israel Hospital, Citibank, Colgate-Palmolive, DuPont, Hallmark Cards, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, 3-M, Motorola, Procter & Gamble, Prudential, and Steelcase, to name some.
 Donnelly Corporation is an international company dedicated to serving customers around the world with high-quality fabricated, molded and coated glass products for the transportation and electronics markets. Donnelly is recognized as a leader in the application of participative practices and employs 2,600 worldwide.
 Donnelly has been based in Holland since 1905 and today operates from 12 facilities in western Michigan. In addition, Donnelly has a major manufacturing facility in Naas, Ireland; a marketing liaison office in Tokyo and in Detroit; an Advanced Technology Center in Tucson, Ariz.; a manufacturing facility (in conjunction with Asahi Glass of Japan) in Mount Pleasant, Tenn.; and another facility will be constructed in Mount Sterling, Ky.
