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.

Synchrony Financial

Anthony Collins Photography

Employees say:


“Working for this company is a beautiful experience because of its progressive direction. The values of the company align with my values as an individual, which is incredibly meaningful.”


“Synchrony Financial is a great place to work because of an inclusive culture that is not just promoted from within, but also exemplified by leaders throughout the business. It makes me excited to come to work every day. I am currently working on a team with employees that have decades of experience, compared to my five years. I have no qualms about raising my hand, bringing new ideas, discussing those ideas, and getting the quick go-ahead to test them out. My ideas are appreciated and seen as a fresh perspective that may make our team or company better, rather than being seen as too risky or unattainable. These kinds of experiences are an important part of my desire to work for the company. Being able to get involved in diversity networks has also been very important to my growth personally and professionally.”
