Top Federal Agencies
The 2010 DiversityInc
BY THE EDITORS OF DIVERSITYINC
DiversityInc unveiled the second annual DiversityInc Top Federal Agencies for Diversity list March 10 in Washington, D.C. The March 10 part of the two-day event, “From EEO to Effective Diversity Management,” was aimed specifically at federal agencies and was attended by more than 200 people. It featured presentations from
major military and corporate leaders, including Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Admiral Mark E.
Ferguson, on diversity-management best practices.
The federal-agency survey was sent to more than 500 agencies this year, with 30 actually
completing the survey. DiversityInc found that many agencies have to go through several levels
of confirmation in order to participate in surveys conducted by the private sector. Therefore, the
next version of this survey is available now and will not be due until Jan. 14, 2011, to allow agencies more time to submit their data. For more information, contact mhall@DiversityInc.com.
The survey focused on four key areas: Leadership Commitment, Human Capital,
Communications and Supplier Diversity. More than 100 questions, all empirically based,
focused on leadership development and mentoring, workforce and management representation,
employee-resource groups, diversity training, diversity branding and supplier diversity.
