Best Consulting Firms for Diversity

Vault's Diversity ranking is based on how well firms perform in five individual diversity categories as well as an overall ranking.

  • Survey Methodology

    Vault's survey asked consultants to rate their firm's diversity with respect to women, with respect to minorities, with respect to gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender individuals, with respect to individuals with disabilities, and with respect to veterans. When asking consultants to assess their firm's diversity in these categories, we asked them to think about hiring, promoting, mentoring and other programs.

    To determine an overall diversity score, we took the average of the scores firms received in each of the five diversity categories (women, minorities, LGBT, individuals with disabilities, and veterans).
