Walmart Tops Diversity List

January 21, 2013

But only two HHPC companies make the DiversityBusiness.com list.

Walmart is the No. 1 company on DiversityBusiness.com's "Top 50 Corporations for Diversity." Rounding out the top 10 were: AT&T, IBM, Northrop Grumman, Office Depot, Cisco Systems, Verizon, Raytheon, Dell and Apple.


Colgate-Palmolive was ranked No. 29 and Johnson & Johnson came in at No. 33. They were the only companies in the household and personal products industry to crack the Top 50.


“The diversity practices of the Div50 has changed the course of economic inclusion and thereby the world as we know it”, said Kenton Clarke, CEO of DiversityBusiness.com. “The great diversity and vision of our country and our people have made this possible. DiversityBusiness.com is proud to have been a force in the business world for such positive change and opportunity. The initiative that we have led has been instrumental in equalizing the playing field and for that we are very honored indeed.”


The 13th annual list was produced by DiversityBusiness.com, a multicultural B2B online website. Over 1,300,000 businesses were asked to answer 10 questions about diversity business in the marketplace. Their answers were based on factors such as volume, consistency and quality business opportunities granted to women and minority-owned companies.


DiversityBusiness.com's list includes the top 50 corporate and organizational buyers of diversity products and services throughout the US. It is said to represent more than 1.3 million diversity-owned (women, African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Native American, and other multicultural groups) businesses in the US, in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services.
