50 Out Front for Diversity Leadership:
BEST PLACES FOR DIVERSE MANAGERS TO WORK

 

CHICAGO, IL– DiversityMBA Magazine, a niche publication targeting people of color and women MBAs, students, professionals and the business community will publish its third annual “50 Out Front for Diversity Leadership: Best Places for Diverse Managers To Work” in its spring issue, which will hit the newsstands in April 2008.

New this year, the 2008 50 Out Front Companies list will showcase companies that make a strategic effort to implement accountable diversity strategies for managers of diverse backgrounds to excel and develop into the executive ranks. In the past, the list focused more on recruitment of minority MBAs. However, since most noted business publications currently compile lists on top companies for minorities to work, DiversityMBA Magazine placed the focus on a segment of diverse management and the pipeline development of emerging leaders. Because our publication readership consists of diverse professionals and entrepreneurs, it is important that our research reflect this audience. Attached is the list of 2008 companies in rank order.

Says Pam McElvane CEO and publisher of DiversityMBA Magazine, “We are learning that Corporate America is making intentional decisions to move diversity forward in their organizations. Our research illustrates that representation has grown greatly across all groups and that the programs for awareness and inclusion are strong. CEO’s involvement makes the critical difference in the ability of an organization to have diversity drive results.”

DiversityMBA Magazine provides research reports on industry diversity programs and performance, continuing education, networking opportunities, professional development for women and people of color working in corporate America, and business entrepreneurs. The magazine is distributed at newsstands, top business schools, professional and business associations and international networks.
