Survey says Microsoft, Google CEOs are among top CEOs for diversity, inclusion in 2020

When it comes to job searching, recruiting and retention, diversity has increasingly become part of the conversation.

Amid the recent Black Lives Matter protests, more companies are pledging to diversify workplaces by hiring more people of color, and CEO’s can play a vital role in making sure it happens. Chief executives can also set the stage for a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for minority workers after they’re hired.

 So which business leaders do it best? 

The heads of  Microsoft, RingCentral and Google, according to results from a workforce survey completed by the compensation, culture and career-monitoring website Comparably

India-born Sataya Nadella is at the helm of the software giant Microsoft. Ukraine-born  Vlad Shmunis cofounded the cloud communications company RingCentral and Sundar Pichai, who was also born in India, leads the search giant Google. 

Comparably unveiled its annua “Best CEOs for Diversity” list on Monday to  underscore leaders who create inclusive work cultures based on ratings from employees of color.

“We need to point out when a company is falling and see what we can change to make better, but we also need to point to great examples of leaders of companies that are fantastic for people of color,” Comparably CEO Jason Nazar told USA TODAY.
