The criteria used to determine this list are similar to those used for the DiversityInc Top 50. Companies on this list, all of whom have a regional focus in their employee base, score well in the four areas measured: Talent Pipeline, Equitable Talent Development, CEO/Leadership Commitment and Supplier Diversity. They are assessed based on more than 180 factors, including:

The No. 1 company on this list, MGM Resorts International, has strong leadership support. Chairman and CEO James Murren signs off on executive compensation tied to diversity, meets regularly with employee resource groups, has a personal quote about diversity on the corporate website and regularly communicates its importance to the business. In addition, the company’s dashboard reviews progress in human capital and supplier diversity, as well as the number of graduates of the company’s Diversity Champion Workshop, the activities of its employee resource groups, and the employee engagement survey.
