HOECHST CELANESE CORPORATION NAMED TO HISPANIC MAGAZINE'S 1993 LIST OF THE TOP 100 COMPANIES

 SOMERVILLE, N.J., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoechst Celanese Corporation has been named to Hispanic magazine's 1993 list of the top 100 companies in the nation providing the most opportunities for Hispanics.
 Hispanic magazine named Hoechst Celanese to the list based on the company's activities throughout the United States. As an example of Hoechst Celanese's efforts to provide opportunities for Hispanics, the magazine cited the relationship that Hoechst Celanese's Corpus Christi Technical Center in Texas has developed with Texas A&I University in Kingsville.
 The center's Human Resources Manager Leonides Bazar, the magazine states, "has tapped into the highly motivated engineering students to develop a program that serves both the students and his company.
 "By creating a Competitive Edge' conference of workshops that bring electrical, chemical, mechanical, and other types of engineers from his company in contact with the university's engineering students, Bazar has made it possible for students to get first-hand knowledge of the careers they are pursuing."
 Hoechst Celanese is involved in organizations throughout the country to help create opportunities for Hispanics. They include SER Jobs for Progress National, Inc. and The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. Hoechst Celanese President and Chief Executive Officer Ernest H. Drew is a member of the Senior Executive Council of the National Amigos de SER and serves on the organization's National Advisory Literacy Council. SER is a non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the needs of Hispanics in the areas of education, job skills training, literacy and employment opportunities.
 "Hoechst Celanese is committed to obtaining greater representation of minorities and women at all levels of the corporation," explained Drew. "One way we can achieve this goal is by working with outside organizations to make sure all groups, such as Hispanics, have the opportunities to obtain the skills that our company needs."
 As part of its diversity initiative, Hoechst Celanese also conducts workshops corporatewide to help make employees aware of the issues surrounding diversity and to prepare them for working in teams made up of employees from diverse backgrounds.
 Hoechst Celanese is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hoechst AG of Germany with leading positions in chemicals, fibers, film, advanced materials and technologies and the life sciences.
