Best Banking Firms for Diversity

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

  • Survey Methodology

    Vault has included a separate section for our diversity rankings. Insiders were asked to rate their firm's commitment to diversity with respect to women, minorities, and gays and lesbians. Firms with fewer than 25 responses for any given question were excluded from that ranking category. To determine our Best Firms for Diversity, we used a formula that weights the average score in all three categories equally. Like our "Quality of Life" rankings, the diversity rankings reflect the opinions and perceptions of insiders.
