Fortune’s third annual hundred Best Places for Diversity List went live this morning. I recommend you spend some quality time finding out what actual employees have to say about their employers — and which employers are having success with gender and racial inclusion. It’s an eye-opening read.

Coming in at number one is Comcast NBCUniversal, followed by Hyatt Hotels, Ultimate Software, Salesforce, and Wegmans Food Market at number five. Baptist Health South Florida rates highest for minority executives (38%), and Roth Staffing, Old Navy and Bright Horizons Family Solutions show outstanding numbers of women in executive ranks, with 71%, 68%, and 67% respectively.

To generate the list, Great Place to Work surveyed some 442,624 employees on more than 50 questions, which they used to anonymously rate their employers. (“Diverse” employees included anyone who identified as a racial/ethnic minority, female, LGBTQ, disabled, or who was born in 1964 or earlier. Click here for more on the methodology.)

Comparison shoppers can also filter by industry, headquarter location, and twenty-three possible states and one province, Ontario. It’s an interesting exercise: If I wanted to pivot out of journalism and stay close to my adopted home state of Missouri, then Build-A-Bear Workshop might be my best option. Bigger states, like New York and California still offer more choice for people who want diverse work environments.

Have fun.
