August 06, 2019 / Valerie Bolden-Barrett

Working Mother Media released its 2019 list of companies rated for their diversity and inclusion (D&I) policies and practices. Organizations rated in the top 10% of participating firms — those that earned a rating of at least 82% — were Accenture, EY (Ernst & Young), Merck, JLL, L'Oréal, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, IBM, Baxter International, Ecolab, Boston Scientific, General Motors, Verizon and PVH Corp. Working Mother Media said the index helps organizations understand gaps in demographic representation and creates a "strategic roadmap" for internal change. Employers were rated on three factors: 1) best practices for recruitment, retention and advancement of LGBTQ people; 2) creation of an inclusive company culture; and 3) transparency around workforce demographic data.
