About DiversityInc

We produce twodiversity eventsevery year the DiversityInc Top 50 announcement in the spring and a best practices event in the fall.Our springevent drawsnearly 1,000guests from more than 300 companies.

The core of DiversityInc is The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity competition. Now in its 18th year, more than 1,800 companies participated last year. It is a metrics-driven evaluation that is independent of business done with our company. We have spent millions of dollars incorporating our methodology into SAS and can positively correlate best practices, like senior-executive accountability, diversity councils, resource groups and mentoring with specific results as expressed by human-capital and supplier-diversity results. Our Benchmarking product can guide a company with absolute precision to a plan that will produce results when executed. We have more than 60 Benchmarking clients; almost all renew every year.

DiversityInc’s CEO and owner is Luke Visconti. He directs all editorial and business operations of the publication.

DiversityInc was founded in 1998.

The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity

The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversitycompetition began in 2001 as corporations were beginning to understand the business value of diversity-management initiatives. The competition has evolved and continues to be refined and improved to reflect how rapidly companies are adapting these strategies. We utilize SAS software to analyze data and draw correlations relevant to performance.

Participation in the list has increased every year and in 2017 topped 1,800 companies.There is volatility on the list as new companies gain strength and others work to keep up with quickly evolving best practices. The DiversityInc Top 50 list is derived exclusively from corporate survey submissions. Companies are evaluated within the context of their own industries, with more than 15 industries represented. Subsets of the same data submission are used to determine our other lists. The methodology for determining the list is data driven and the process is editorially driven.

The new list is announced in person at our Springevent. Please seewww.DiversityInc.com/events for more information on our diversity events.
