As the Covid-19 pandemic and numerous social justice movements have rocked the U.S., the need for more corporate diversity, equity and inclusion programs has become more pressing than ever before. Some businesses appear to be stepping up: Of the thousands of companies considered for Forbes’ fourth annual list of America’s Best Employers For Diversity, 60% are proactively sharing on their websites what they’re doing to promote diversity, up from 46% this time last year. Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey 50,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees and pinpoint the companies they identified as being most dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion. The final list ranks the 500 employers that not only received the most recommendations, but also boast the most diverse boards and executive ranks, as well as the most proactive diversity and inclusion initiatives.
