Best Accounting Firms for Diversity

To determine the Best Firms for Diversity, we used a formula that equally weights the average score in all five diversity categories.

  • Survey Methodology

    Insiders were asked to rate their firm's commitment to diversity with respect to women, minorities, LGBT individuals, military veterans, and individuals with disabilities. To determine our Best 20 Firms for Diversity, we used a formula that weights the average score in all five categories equally. Like our other quality of life rankings, the diversity rankings reflect the opinions and perceptions of insiders.
