The DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for African Americans List (2009)

Sponsor: DiversityInc

“Of all the 401 applicants to The 2009 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity® list, the companies on this specialty list have demonstrated a long-term commitment to hiring, retaining, compensating and promoting African Americans. They do this through building strong community relationships, establishing pipelines to schools and professional organizations, and maintaining deep relationships with Black-owned suppliers.”

“To determine this list, we examined several ratios showing how companies are increasing the presence and role of Black employees, including their percentage of the work force versus new hires, management versus promotions in management, and in different levels of management versus the top 10 percent highest-paid employees. We also looked at the strength and purpose of the company's employee-resource groups for Blacks, its mentoring program, its philanthropic and scholarship efforts in the Black community, and its relationships with MBEs (minority business enterprises) as suppliers.”
