DiversityFIRST™ Top 40 Companies
As diversity has grown into a major business imperative, so too has the call to rank companies on their diversity efforts. In fact, many companies covet the rankings on such lists. In a culture that puts significant emphasis on lists and rankings, such lists are the start, not the end of a company’s demonstrated commitment to diversity. The National Diversity Council introduces the next generation of quantitative and qualitative assessment of a company’s diversity effort. Using a proprietary process, The National Diversity Council assesses a company’s diversity effort in the areas of People, Community, Supplier Diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility.
