Companies ranked by diversity in gender and race, equity in recruitment
To find the companies that are doing this particularly well, DiversityInc invited thousands of companies to fill out a survey with roughly 300 questions. Over 1,600 companies participated in this year's survey, which measured human capital in seven variables, including gender and race; fairness and equity from recruitment to development and retention; and supplier diversity.
"If you're looking for job, or an investment opportunity, or a company to do business with, this list is very important," Visconti says. "It's metrics-driven, and the ranking primarily reflects fairness in human capital results, including five levels of management."
Here are the 25 most diverse companies in the US:
