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, gays and lesbians, individuals with disabilities, and military veterans. To determine our Best Firms for Diversity, we used a formula that weights the average score in all five categories equally. Like our "Quality of Life" rankings, the diversity rankings reflect the opinions and perceptions of insiders.
