The Top Ten Tech Companies for Diversity

AT&T  AT&T spends more than 20% of its prime-contracting budgets to benefit supplier companies owned by blacks, Latinos and Asians, as well as women and veterans with disabilities.

As enterprises continue to expand globally, the significance of diversity hiring and promoting practices cannot be undervalued. Businesses that fail to grasp this will find themselves at a significant competitive disadvantage as they attempt to win over new international markets. With this in mind, DiversityInc has come out with its annual "Top 50 Companies for Diversity" list. More than 890 organizations took part in the survey, from which DiversityInc compiled its rankings. At the top of the list is Sodexo, the high-profile provider of integrated food and facilities management services. However, as an exclusive for Baseline, DiversityInc has also produced the following list of the top 10 technology companies for diverse hiring and leadership representation practices. (Important note: DiversityInc uses the term "black" in its reporting rather than "African American" because of the wealth of professionals from international nations who benefit from the included companies' diversity initiatives.)
