Several prime employers for women are ranked highly in the inaugural Diversity Leaders list, a ranking showing the extent to which 700 companies in 10 European countries offer a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Schneider Electric, Eaton, Honeywell, Capgemini and McDonald's are all featured in the ranking for their impressive efforts. The list, compiled by the Financial Times alongside the publication's research partner Statista, assesses companies’ success in promoting all types of diversity - including gender balance, openness to all forms of sexual orientation, disability as well as an ethnic and social mix that reflects wider society.

Making the cut following extensive evaluation

To produce the list, the Financial Times surveyed the performance of 10,000 privately held and publicly listed companies employing at least 250 people in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

The Diversity Leaders were identified in an independent survey of more than 80,000 employees. In addition, Statista sought the opinions of human resources and recruitment experts. A call to evaluate employers was also published on FT.com, enabling readers to share their views. The 700 companies receiving the highest total scores made the final list of Diversity Leaders.

Schneider Electric received a particularly high ranking, coming in at number 41 in the list and the company commented "Diversity and inclusion are top priorities in our organization and we'll continue to make our impact to be an inclusive company."
