Best Companies for Multicultural Women

The list is in! Working Mother Magazine released its 100 Best Companies for Multicultural Women. The odd thing is there is not one Florida company on the list. NOT ONE. That strikes me as insane consider our multicultural population and how embracing companies in our area have been.

Here is the criteria: hiring, pay and promotion of multicultural employees. This year, the magazine gave the most weight to questions involving the representation, recruitment and retention of women of color. I'm not sure whether the magazine considered Hispanic representation but I plan to ask the editor.

The report says unlike their Boomer parents, Gen Y's tend to look beyond skin color for their identity, choosing instead to define themselves by age or lifestyle. This shift is causing companies to rethink their diversity strategies so that they resonate with a group that's eager for speedy advancement. Do you agree? Should your company be on the list?
