For the second consecutive year, Forbes magazine and research firm Statista surveyed 50,000 employees from a broad range of companies asking about issues related to diversity, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age and disability. The diversity of companies’ management teams and boards and whether a company actively communicates about diversity, also were factored into the ranking. Edward Jones ranked number 65 overall.
