Corporate Diversity Honor Roll 2006

Diversity looms larger than ever as a strategic imperative among today’s largest and most influential corporations. In fact, if you want to see a corporate executive become defensive, simply question his or her company’s commitment to things like minority outreach and retention.

For this reason, and given the considerable disparity of corporate diversity efforts, we have decided once again to recognize those companies doing the most on behalf of the nation’s women and minority communities.

Latin Business magazine’s third annual Corporate Diversity Honor Roll recognizes 21 companies on the basis of such things as Hispanic or minority representation and supplier diversity.

We began with an initial pool of some 80 companies, which were selected on the basis of having received diversity-related recognition elsewhere. These companies were then surveyed about their respective minority outreach, retention, promotion, and marketing efforts, in addition to minority representation as a percentage of boards, management, and rank-and-file workers. Respondents were also encouraged to highlight their philanthropic efforts on behalf of minorities as well as their record with regard to minority procurement.

While we solicited Hispanic-specific data, we did give participating firms the option of detailing their overall diversity efforts, as we realize that many companies simply do not track and organize such information by ethnicity.

It is our very great pleasure to introduce Latin Business magazine’s 2006 Corporate Diversity Honor Roll!
