Company Recognized for Strong Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
RESTON, Va., June 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Forbes has named global consulting and technology services provider ICF (NASDAQ: ICFI) one of America's Best Employers for Diversity for the third straight year.
"At ICF, we celebrate our differences in who we are, what we have experienced, and how we think," said John Wasson, ICF chair and chief executive officer. "We constantly work to ensure we are a company where everyone feels welcomed and valued; where they can bring their whole, authentic selves; and where they have a voice. Through these unique viewpoints and experiences, we are bound by a single set of values and a common purpose: to build a more prosperous and resilient world for all. And our commitment to inclusion is a key element to how we fulfill that purpose."
To create the list of top employers for diversity, Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey more than 45,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Respondents were asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as age, gender, ethnicity, disability and LGBTQ+ equality, as well as general diversity. Diversity-related best practices—such as the presence of employee resource groups, publication of diversity data and percentage of women in board and executive roles—were also considered. The top 500 companies made the final list.
ICF ranked 14th on this year's national list and 2nd for professional services companies. Earlier this year, ICF was also included on Forbes' America's Best Management Consulting Firms list for the eighth year in a row.
