“Our focus is to create a workplace where our employees individual needs are recognized, where their voices are heard, their lived experiences are valued, and an environment where they can be themselves,” said Sonam Lalwani, Head of Diversity, Inclusion and Wellbeing, Philips North America. “We are not only committed to transformation, but lasting, sustainable change that yields the result of a diverse workplace, inclusive and equitable for all.”
The Best Employers for Diversity were selected based on survey from approximately 45,000 U.S. employees working for companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees. Participants rate their organizations on criteria such as age, gender, ethnicity, disability and LGBTQ+ equality, as well as general diversity. Forbes also asked respondents from underrepresented groups to rate businesses other than their own.
