50 companies with impressive diversity hiring records
These companies came out ahead in a Black Enterprise analysis.
Over the last couple years, companies around the U.S. have ramped up efforts to increase diversity among their ranks. There has been a well-documented diversity issue in certain industries, namely tech, but there is evidence to show that the tide is turning.
Although the diversity issue still has a long way yet to go—currently in the U.S., African-Americans, Latinos and Asians only make up 13% of senior management positions, and far fewer are represented on the boards of directors at Fortune 250 and Fortune 500 companies, according to top diversity publication Diversity, Inc.—there are some companies that do a solid job when it comes to diversity hiring practices.
Recently, Black Enterprise magazine and the Executive Leadership Council, a leading organization of black senior managers, released its 30th annual 50 Best Companies for Diversity list, which represents brands where diversity is reflected from the top down.
To compile the list, the magazine measured the nation’s top 1,000 publicly traded companies against the number of ethnic minority groups represented in its employee base, senior management and board of directors as well as the percentage of total procurement dollars spent on diversity practices. The companies on Black Enterprise’s list are unranked and instead listed in alphabetical order.
