WHY IT’S ON THE LIST
In a year that saw the company undergo a $25 billion privatization and a subsequent workplace reduction, Dell has continued its deeply rooted commitment to diversity and inclusion and moves up five spots.
Chairman and CEO Michael Dell continues to head the Global Executive Diversity Council, which links executive compensation to diversity goals set by the council.
Under the leadership of Vice President, Global Talent Management and Chief Diversity Officer Dana Keefer, Dell continues to set the bar with its global employee resource groups. The company has global groups for women, disabilities, GenNext and LGBT employees.
The groups are aligned with U.S. chapters and all resource groups have pillars aligned with professional development. The groups work together to provide in-person and virtual career and leadership-development opportunities.
Many of the groups also have pillars around their contribution to the business. For example, the women’s group (Wise) added a new pillar called Business & Customer Engagement to drive business through new customer relationships and partnering with other companies.

“We can deliver better outcomes for our millions of customers through the experiences, talents and thinking of our diverse global team. A commitment to diversity and inclusion has always been, and will continue to be, a competitive advantage of Dell’s business strategy.”
Vice President, Global Talent Management and Chief Diversity Officer
“At Dell, our commitment to diversity drives our desire to create a workplace where team members can be their best and do their best work. When our team members can reach their full potential, it drives innovation, engagement and an environment where we can exceed the expectations of our customers.”
