Since 2003, Seramount’s Best Companies for Multicultural Women has tracked corporations’ progress in creating cultures that encourage multicultural women to join and rise through the ranks.

“Corporations continue to make progress in recruiting, retaining, and promoting multicultural women,” said Subha V. Barry, President of Seramount. “While there is still work to be done to increase representation numbers, we applaud the efforts made in building inclusive workplaces through the implementation of strong career pathing initiatives and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs. These policies will enable organizations to attract this critical talent pool.”

This year’s Top 10 Companies (in alphabetical order) are: Accenture, Bristol Myers Squibb, Ernst & Young LLP, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, Johnson & Johnson, KPMG LLP, L’Oréal USA, Inc., Moody’s Corporation, New York Life, and Verizon
