MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 29, 2005--U.S. Bank is one of
the top 50 best places for Latinas to work in the United States
according to a 2005 listing by LATINA Style magazine. The list will be

LATINA Style credited U.S. Bank for its demonstrated commitment to
diversity, hiring and promoting Latinas at all levels of the
organization, its mentorship program and workplace benefits as factors
leading to the company's inclusion on the list.
"U.S. Bank's percentage of Latina employees and number of senior
executive level and executive level vice presidents was larger than
some for companies comparable in size," said Robert Bard, president
and publisher of LATINA Style Magazine.
Bard also cited U.S. Bank's recruitment efforts, specifically in
the Hispanic segment, diversity website postings and partnerships with
national Hispanic organizations as reasons for U.S. Bank's
achievement, as well as its flexible work options, generous
scholarships and focus on the advancement of female employees through
its mentorship and emerging leaders programs.

and civic organizations, national women's organizations, more than
