A Chief Diversity Officer has to break down the walls of communication and get people talking about what’s on their minds. Companies with diverse teams are more innovative and creative, and attract more diverse job candidates and customers. Driving this strategy for any company is the Chief Diversity Officer of a company. These awards are an attempt to honor the Top 20 Chief Diversity Officers by HR Tech Outlook. We have come up with a 3 step process to select the winners. First, we invite our subscribers to nominate their peers. We have a strong research team that will vette these nominations and will also add commendable names to it. As the last step, our editorial board and a team of outside industry insiders will select the final Top 20 Chief Diversity Officers. To broaden our nominations, we have also opened up for our website visitors to nominate by filling this form.
