Forbes partnered with Statista — a platform in Germany that provides company insights — to assess diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives nationwide. The analysis yielded insights that Ryan Sharrow, of the Philadelphia Business Journal, distilled to focus on the Philadelphia region and Montgomery County specifically.

Statista surveyed more than 45,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees.

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Ethnicity
  • Disability
  • LGBTQ+ equality
