To gain a recognition, an organization must meet criteria based on CEO commitment, diverse suppliers, people, internal policies and community outreach.

More than 250 organizations responded to the 2016 survey, a 40 percent increase from 2015. Noting lessons learned from last year’s survey results, 39 companies reported making changes to strengthen the diversity of their workforce and the inclusivity of their workplaces.
