Company Accolades Continue

The June issue of DiversityInc magazine hit newsstands last week. The edition highlights the Top 50 Companies for Diversity and includes several food and beverage CPG companies and retailers, including The Coca-Cola Company at number 17, General Mills at number 29, Kraft Foods at number 35, and Target Corporation at number 40.

This year, 449 companies participated, up 12 percent from 2009. Thirty companies moved up on the list from last year, 19 moved down, and three companies are newcomers. To earn a spot on the list, corporations submitted a survey consisting of 200 questions that evaluated four areas: CEO Commitment, Human Capital, Corporate and Organizational Communications, and Supplier Diversity.

The survey results also determine the specialty lists:The list is now in its tenth year. DiversityInc continues to refine the survey each year to reflect best practices in diversity management.

Do you work for one of the food and beverage CPG companies or retailers on the list? I would love to hear more about your company's commitment to diversity.
