Respondents were asked to anonymously rate their organizations on general diversity and specific topics such as age, gender, sexual orientation equality, ethnicity, disability.

“We are incredibly proud to be named to the Forbes list of Best Employers for Diversity,” said Shameka Young, Vice President and Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion, Cognizant. “For us, D&I is about creating conditions where every person can thrive, and we work relentlessly to ensure we lean into that commitment.
