Jesse Jackson Sr., founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. At lunch the audience heard from Paul Butler, author of “Chokehold: Policing Black Men.”

DiversityInc also unveiled its brand new Hall of Fame, inducting five companies: EY, Kaiser Permanente, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, PwC and Sodexo. The companies have ranked No. 1 on the Top 50 list at least once since 2012.

Hall of Fame companies are listed above the Top 50 on DiversityInc’s website. Future No. 1 companies will be added to the Hall of Fame.
