Nielsen, a leading global provider of information and insights into what consumers watch and buy, was named to DiversityInc’s 14th annual Top 50 Companies for Diversity list. More than 1,000 public and privately held companies competed for spots.

“We are honored to be included on the DI Top 50, as this recognition is a testament to the focus we place on building a culture of diversity and inclusion at Nielsen,” said D. Sangeeta, chief diversity officer and executive vice president, Measurement Science, Nielsen. “As we look to further innovate and win in a truly global marketplace, our commitment to fostering an environment that values diverse perspectives, experiences and relationships is imperative to the growth and success of our business.”

“Earning a spot on the DI Top 50 proves that management is paying close attention to the needs of their primary constituents—employees, customers and other key stakeholders,” said DiversityInc founder and CEO, Luke Visconti. “Companies with great reputations attract the best and most skilled employees who then create and deliver the best products and services. It’s a virtuous cycle that enables public companies on the DiversityInc Top50 list to consistently outperform the major domestic stock market indices and privately held companies to surpass their peers.”

The DiversityInc rankings are determined by an objective methodology that calculates factors such as Talent Pipeline, Equitable Talent Development (including commitments to mentorship and philanthropy), CEO/Leadership Commitment, and Supplier Diversity. The empirical data for the rankings is provided by a 300-question survey filled out by personnel at the participating companies. Survey participation is free to any company with at least 1,000 U.S. workers.
