The Best of the Best annual review highlights companies and schools for helping minorities advance, get employed and start or partner with a business. Many companies are talking about the value of hiring a minority, but for those who are doing it and as a result seeing the increased value to their businesses—kudos to you.

Organizations that strive for diversity and incorporate it into their business practices are able to leverage the value that true diversity has to offer: a rich breadth of ideas, a wide range of perspectives, and an ability to attract the very best talent. When diversity pervades your organization, you better understand the demographics of your market and thus are well equipped to attract and meet the needs of that market.

DiversityComm, Inc. (DCI) proudly presents its Best of the Best evaluation each year.

Our annual review is a valuable resource for job-seekers, business owners and management, students, and consumers.
