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.
