Methodology

The Best Workplaces in Diversity offer the very best workplace experiences according to the diverse employees who work there. To determine the list, Great Place to Work got feedback from 442,624 employees on more than 50 survey questions anonymously rating their employers.

For the purposes of this list, “diverse” employees were anyone who identified as a racial/ethnic minority, female, LGBTQ, disabled, or who was born in 1964 or earlier. We compared the experiences these employees reported to that of their colleagues, focusing on areas that the data revealed the most differentiation in their daily workplace experience. We also considered the degree of representation in the organization.

Rankings were driven by diverse employees’ feedback. To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified standard, have at least 50 employees, and their survey results needed at least a 95% confidence level, and a 5% margin of error or better.

Employees say:

 

“Cooley appreciates and celebrates each individual’s uniqueness. Cooley’s culture is one of acceptance and enjoyment. We strive for excellence and consider our employees and clients as part of the family.”

 

“When I come to work, I feel genuinely supported and challenged at the same time. I haven’t even been with Cooley for a year and I already have had so many opportunities to learn new things and work with so many people across the firm. The company culture is so unique in that in my first few days here, I was immediately welcomed to the team and my opinion was not only solicited, but valued. I feel grateful that I get to come in and work at this firm everyday.”
