New York, N.Y. – 19 May 2017: IBM (NYSE: IBM) has again been named to Working Mother magazine’s Best Companies for Multicultural Women list, which recognizes U.S. companies that create and use best practices in hiring, retaining and promoting women of color. IBM is one of only two companies listed since the initiative launched 15 years ago.
The Working Mother Research Institute has conducted the study since 2003, tracking corporations’ progress in promoting women of color and evaluating their representation at every level of management and decision-making.
According to IBM Chief Diversity Officer Lindsay-Rae McIntyre, “Diversity and inclusion are more than HR policies – they need to be part of a company’s culture and values. IBM has long been committed to supporting a diverse workforce, and our willingness to take on issues of inclusion, fairness and equal opportunity have made us a magnet for the smartest and most talented people in the world.”
