A total of 401 companies, an increase of 14 percent from last year, vied for the honor this year, underscoring the increasing emphasis on diversity management among progressive companies.

"At Kaiser Permanente, diversity management is a core value and an indisputable business imperative that is central to achieving our mission and business goals," says Ronald Knox, senior vice president and chief diversity officer at Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. "We are grateful for DiversityInc's recognition of our diversity efforts and commitment and honored to be included among the nation's corporate leaders in diversity."
