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.

See our methodology and credits



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:


“Women actually make partner while they are out on maternity leave. They provide female attorneys with the option to work part time and still remain on partnership track. This is absolutely critical to increasing our number of female partners.”


“Our Diversity Committee is amazing. For example, a copy of the gorgeous photo book ‘Strong Is the New Pretty’ was left at our desks to celebrate International Women’s Day. I have teenager daughters who are navigating what it means to be a strong girl and woman, and I thought the gift was terrific.”
