41 hospitals, health systems among Forbes' best employers for diversity

Forbes released its seventh annual ranking of the nation's best employers for diversity on April 23, and the rankings include 41 hospitals and health systems.

The rankings, a partnership between the media company and Statista, are based in part on a survey of 170,000 people working for organizations with at least 1,000 U.S. employees, according to Forbes. Survey respondents rated their own employers, in addition to companies they knew well through their industry or through friends and family members who worked there. 

Survey responses included in the analysis were from 2023 as well as those given over the the last three years. Recent survey data and responses from employees themselves and from respondents who self-identified as being part of a relevant underrepresented group received higher weights.

Additionally, analysts said they examined more than 1,300 companies on their diversity, equity and inclusion approaches — such as the presence of employee resource groups, the publication of employee demographic data, the percentage of women in leadership roles, and supplier diversity. 

Companies were scored based on all of these factors, and the 500 companies with the highest scores made the final list of best employers for diversity.
