50 best companies for diversity

Over the last couple years, companies around the U.S. have ramped up efforts to increase diversity among their ranks. While there have been well-documented diversity issues in certain industries, namely tech, the tide is slowly starting to turn.

That's not by accident. Diversity, it turns out, it really good for business. A recent survey by McKinsey called Delivering Through Diversity found that ethnically diverse executive teams were 33% more likely to see better-than-average profits; and companies that feature gender diversity in management positions are 21% more likely to experience above-average profits.

Recently, Forbes, in partnership with research firm Statista, released its second-ever America's Best Employers For Diversity list, which represents companies where diversity is reflected from the top down. To compile the list, Statista surveyed 50,000 Americans working for companies with more than 1,000 employees, asking questions about gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and disability, with responses from underrepresented groups holding greater weight in the ranking.

Great news: The top 50 companies on Forbes’s list are hiring on Monster. These top employers run the gamut from universities to media corporations, banking and financial services to health care organizations, and yes, even tech companies. Click through the list below to see if there’s one that’s a good fit for you.
