Top 10 companies by gender diversity: 

  1. Salesforce 

  2. Adobe 

  3. Intuit 

  4. T-Mobile 

  5. LinkedIn 

  6. Accenture 

  7. PayPal 

  8. Workday 

  9. Apple 

  10. Facebook

Top 10 companies by racial diversity: 

  1. VMWare

  2. Disney 

  3. LinkedIn 

  4. Salesforce 

  5. Intuit 

  6. Google 

  7. T-Mobile 

  8. Dell 

  9. Facebook 

  10. Symantec

The rankings are determined by how these companies’ own underrepresented employees rate their experiences at work….
