The MENTOR Network has been named to the Forbes 2021 list of America’s Best Employers for Diversity.
“We are proud to be recognized for our diversity and inclusion,” said Natasha Hudspeth, Chief Diversity Officer and VP of Talent at The MENTOR Network. “Our values of integrity, respect, inclusion and growth reflect who we are and how we do things. We take the connection between our values, mission, and being a preferred employer seriously and are continuously evolving our diversity and inclusion goals and approaches as we learn and grow together. We employ a diverse workforce and serve diverse populations. We aim to reflect the communities where we work with respect for the unique contribution each individual we serve and work alongside brings to our team.”
In collaboration with analytics firm Statista, Forbes identified the Best Employers for Diversity through an independent survey of over 50,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing more than 1,000 people in the United States.
“In addition to hiring a diverse workforce, The MENTOR Network is committed to providing a path for career development that lifts our teams up and supports a diverse and inclusion environment at all levels of the organization,” added Natasha.
To compile the list, Statista surveyed employees on criteria such as age, gender, ethnicity, disability and sexual orientation equality, as well as that of general diversity. The final list ranks the 500 employers that not only received the most recommendations, but also boast the most diverse boards and executive ranks and the most proactive diversity and inclusion initiatives.
