The competitiveness of corporate America requires inclusion at all levels---and that culture comes from the top. That’s why BLACK ENTERPRISE has developed our list of the Top Executives in Corporate Diversity. 

This roster represents senior managers and C-suite executives charged with ensuring that major corporations have diverse representation across the board. We found top-ranked executives among the nation’s 250 largest publicly traded corporations whose primary responsibility is oversight and implementation of policies and programs that advance African Americans, Latinos, and other ethnic minorities as well as women, the disabled, and the LGBT (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender) population throughout their employee, senior management, and supplier ranks. They are also involved with expansive outreach to the diverse communities in which they serve.

Discover some of the executives we featured in our May 2014 issue who make diversity a business imperative.
