Career website Comparably published its annual ranking of the best companies for diversity. The companies at the top of the list are highly ranked by non-white workers. Comparably anonymously asked employees of color questions about their company's work environment and culture. The survey was open from December 1, 2019 to December 1, 2020, and the questions cover 20 metrics.

Questions ranged in topics, from working at the company to questions related to leadership. For instance, employees were asked "Do you believe your manager cares about you as a person?" and "Do you look forward to interacting with your co-workers?"

Of the large companies, or those with over 500 employees, Microsoft ranked at the top.

The following are the 25 best large companies for diversity, according to employees of color. Employee quotes are from Comparably. You can read the full lists at Comparably here.
