BLACK ENTERPRISE magazine, in partnership with the Executive Leadership Council (ELC), has placed Comerica on its 2016 "50 Best Companies for Diversity" list. Black Enterprise Magazine conducts this annual survey to identify companies that demonstrate strength in four key areas:
Board of Directors
This is at least the seventh time Comerica has been placed on the "Best Companies for Diversity" list.
In selecting the 2016 companies, BLACK ENTERPRISE and ELC sent surveys to the nation's top 1,000 publicly traded companies with strong U.S. operations. The final list includes those that showed a commitment to diversifying its ranks in four areas: employee base, senior management, supplier diversity, and board of directors. Companies were also chosen based on programs created to nurture and maintain a diverse professional space. Surveys did not simply focus on black inclusion, but ethnic minority groups as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau. Supporting criteria used to finalize the list included efforts directed toward women, the disabled, veterans, and the LGBT community.
The complete report, including methodology and selection criteria, is available in the October issue of BLACK ENTERPRISE magazine.
