The 2013 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list was announced at a gala dinner in New York on April 23. Despite tough competition with more than 800 other participating companies, P&G was again among the Top 10 Companies for Diversity, coming in at #7 overall and #1 in our industry.
DiversityInc is considered the gold standard in the United States for ranking companies for diversity, based on four areas: CEO commitment to diversity management, workforce diversity & human capital, corporate/organizational communications, and supplier diversity. We are honored to again be ranked as a leading company with top peers and across a wide range of industries, including consulting, retail, manufacturing and banking.
Maintaining a top ten ranking is a noteworthy accomplishment and a strong indicator that we are indeed fostering a culture of inclusion, and making diversity and inclusion a part of our Company DNA and all we do.
P&G was recognized as a long time diversity leader, having made the list for most of the past decade. “Bob McDonald’s personal involvement is a model for other CEOs and the company has a strong leader in its focused marketing to multicultural groups (My Black is Beautiful, Orgullosa),” said Luke Visconti, CEO of DiversityInc.
Beyond P&G's ranking on the DiversityInc Top 50 list, P&G holds top spots in several other 2013 DiversityInc rankings, including:
Top Company for Recruitment & Retention (#5) Top Company for People With Disabilities (#2) Top Company for Asian-Americans (#2) Top Company for Latinos (#2) Top Company for Global Diversity (#8)
