The 100 Best Workplaces for Diversity 2017

Fortune’s annual list of companies in the U.S. doing the most to create inclusive cultures for minorities, LGBT employees, and women.

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:


“I feel like my managers actually care about me and my future at this company. They do their best to help me reach my goals. I asked to attend a training and they sent me. I learned so many things that I can now bring back to the store!”


“Without a doubt, the thing that makes Patagonia a very special place to work is the people that make up the company!! From the most entry-level person, to the CEO, all the way to Yvon and Malinda themselves!! The people of Patagonia are incredible and I truly enjoy working with them.”
