Employers across the country know that diversity is key to attracting talented workers and staying competitive. But who’s actually investing in diversity and making it a priority?

In collaboration with research firm Statista, Forbes released its list of 250 best employers for diversity in America. Statista surveyed 30,000 U.S. employees in Aug. 2017 to inform the list, asking questions about diversity, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age and disability. 

Responses among underrepresented ethnic minorities, women and people aged 50 and older received greater weight in the ranking. Other factors Statista incorporated were the gender split of companies’ management teams and boards, and whether a company proactively communicates about diversity.
