Incidents of workplace bias aren’t hard to come by.

Every year, thousands of workers file complaints with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission – the agency created to eradicate discrimination on the job and investigate workers’ grievances. And high-profile cases abound of employees filing lawsuits against companies citing unfair and unequal treatment. 

As minorities, allies and bottom-line focused execs work to diversify organizations that have failed to welcome and support all workers, it’s important to spotlight the companies that seem to be getting it right.

That’s according to the compensation, culture and career monitoring website Comparably, which released a list of the top-ranked CEOs for diversity on Tuesday based on ratings from a pool of ethnically diverse employees.

“I think anytime you have a leadership team that’s diverse itself, whether ethnicity or sexual orientation, that trickles down,” said Comparably’s CEO Jason Nazar, who added that the many of the CEOs on the list “make a very public commitment to diversity and inclusion, making sure that those are fairly represented across the company.”

Who came out on top?

Sasan Goodarzi of the financial software company Intuit, Daniel Dines of the automation vendor UiPath and Carlos Rodriguez of the online payroll company ADPwere ranked highest, representing companies with at least 500 employees.

T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere and Google’s Sundar Pichai rounded out the top five. (read more)
