Outstanding Diverse Organizations identifies for-profit or nonprofit organizations that have contributed to harnessing diversity within their workforces and actively taken the lead to promote and champion the business case for diversity within the community or their industries. Companies in this category will be awarded by the size of their organizations — small, medium and large.
Small companies (10-99 employees)
Medium companies (100-499 employees)
Large companies (500+ employees)
Outstanding Supplier Diversity recognizes companies that successfully seek out and do business with minority suppliers.
Outstanding Diversity Helping Hand recognizes for-profit and nonprofit organizations that have shown dedication to promoting and championing diversity and inclusion in the business community or are supplying diversity-related resources, such as job sites, diversity training programs and e-learning during 2019/2020.
