Five companies based in Illinois were included in Black Enterprise magazine’s “40 Best Companies for Diversity.”

All of the companies that made the list in the December/January issue of Black Enterprise were rated based on diversity in four areas: board of directors, employee base, senior management and supplier diversity. The magazine began publishing the list in 2005.

The Illinois companies:

  • Allstate Corp., Northbrook
  • Exelon Corp., Chicago
  • McDonald’s Corp., Oak Brook
  • Northern Trust Corp., Chicago
  • State Farm Insurance Co., Bloomington

Black Enterprise said hundreds of companies refused to take the survey and others said they didn’t have enough time to provide diversity information.
