America's Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2023

By Newsweek

Most companies these days talk a lot about diversity.  It is common to hear employers emphasizing their efforts to recruit and promote  people of different ages, races, genders, sexuality and abilities. And that makes sense, not only because diversity is important particularly to younger job applicants, but also because it is well-documented that workplaces filled with people with different worldviews are more creative, more innovative and generally make better decisions.  Employing a wide variety of people who feel comfortable and respected isn't a desirable perk, it is simply good business.

With the word "diversity" attracting so much attention from companies, however, it can be tough for job applicants, customers and potential business partners to tell who is serious about supporting a diverse workforce and who is not.  To that end, Newsweek and market data research firm Plant-A Insights are proud to introduce America's Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2023 our scored list of the 1,000 companies that employees say really respect and value different kinds of people.

We based our scoring on our review of publicly available data, interviews with HR professionals and an anonymous online survey of a diverse pool of employees at companies with 1,000 or more employees in the U.S. Respondents were asked questions about corporate culture, working environment and other subjects at both their own companies and others they were familiar with. The survey yielded more than 350,000 company reviews.

We've grouped the winning companies by six main economic sectors and 34 industries. The top-scoring companies on our list are themselves a diverse list spanning different kinds of businesses, including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, Kellogg Company, Key Bank, Dutch Bros. Coffee and Hawaiian Airlines among others.

Whether you are a job applicant, a consumer or someone who does business with one of these companies, we hope you'll find this listing of companies useful.
