Comparably, the company review site released its latest annual survey of the best CEOs for diversity. This survey is based on employee reviews who identify as Black, Latin, Asian, Indigenous, or another White race.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella makes it to Top of the Diversity list
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was ranked at the top of this 2020 list. Nadella who became the CEO of Microsoft in 2014 has always been known to voice his concerns on social issues about bias in artificial intelligence, female leadership in the corporate sector, corporate social responsibility, and racial and gender diversity. Recently, he had also started this system of tying the executive compensation to diversity metrics and evaluate and allocate promotion to head posts based on their ability to build a diverse team.
In the wake of protests over George Floyd’s killing last month, he also committed an additional $150 million to the company’s investment in diversity and inclusion. This investment has been allocated to attain the goal of increasing the Black senior leaders in the U.S. by 2025.
Google and Apple CEOs also rank high on these best-rated CEOs for the diversity list. However, the tech industry has been known for its lack of representation of Black, Latino, and women. As per the report of 2018, the percentage of Black workers at Apple was the highest at just under 10% whereas those at Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter all remained under 5%.

The 2020 review report was compiled over an annual period ending on June 30, 2020. Employees were asked to provide anonymous feedback to Comparably. Factors considered for review were the rating of CEO, workplace culture, as well as the percentage of fair compensation to employees. Comparably’s database is compiled using data of around 60,000 countries spanning across different industries. Also, all organizations included in this list have more than 500 employees.
The employee response this year had greater significance because it reflected the organization’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing protest against racism and police violence in the U.S.
According to Comparably, the rankings were calculated based on more than 10 million data points, and additional points were given to companies with more participation from their employee base.
