For the eighth year in a row Pepco Holdings, Inc., has been recognized
Enterprise magazine as one of the "Best Companies for
Diversity." The July feature article highlights Pepco Holdings for
demonstrating a commitment to diversity in the areas of employee base,
senior management and supplier diversity efforts.
"We're proud to again be recognized by Black Enterprise magazine
for our ongoing commitment to creating an inclusive workplace," said
Ernest Jenkins, vice president, people strategy and human resources for
Pepco Holdings. "Diversity is an integral part of our business strategy,
culture and core values and our employees proudly hold themselves to
high standards in supporting diversity."
To select the 2012 "Best Companies for Diversity," Black Enterprise
sent surveys to America's top 1,000 publicly traded companies as well as
to the 100 leading global companies with strong U.S. operations. The
questionnaire focused on the participation of African-Americans and
members of other ethnic minority groups as defined by the U.S. Census
Bureau in four key areas - supplier diversity, senior management, board
involvement, and employee base. The final scores, along with the results
of reporting and research conducted by the editorial staff, were used to
determine the "Top 40 Best Companies for Diversity."
The 2012 "Best Companies for Diversity" is featured in the July issue of Black
Enterprise available on newsstands now and online at http://www.blackenterprise.com/small-business/2012-best-companies-diversity-list/.
