Verizon was recently named in the Top 10 of Working Mother’s list of Top Companies for Multicultural Women, a recognition we are proud of earning for the past 15 years. 

This year’s winners were selected based on their answers to an extensive questionnaire covering representation; hiring; attrition and promotion rates; recruitment, retention and advancement programs; and company culture.

Here are some key findings from this year’s Working Mother report on companies for multicultural women: 

  • This year, multicultural women accounted for 11% of senior managers, compared with 10% last year, and 8% five years ago. 
  • This year saw increases in promotions for black, Latinx, and Asian women with profit and loss experience, as well as in heading major divisions or country revenues of more than $1 billion.
  • The improvement at the very senior positions correlates to progress in participation in best practices, including recruitment initiatives, formal sponsorship, and mentoring and leadership development.
  • More CEOs have publicly declared their support for diversity and inclusion this year, including the hiring and promotion of multicultural women. 

Committed to diversity and inclusion.
