Diversity Recruiting continues to be on both Executives and Recruiting minds. It’s also on the mind of Senator Robert Menendez, our only Hispanic Senator. Menendez recently stated “As Chair of the Senate Democratic Hispanic Task Force, one of my top priorities has always been promoting and expanding diversity at all levels of our economic, political and social sectors.”
So, he surveyed senior executives and senior management from Fortune 500 companies earlier this year, and last week unveiled the results on women and minority representation among the senior management of Fortune 500 companies, as well as their use of minority and women-owned businesses in the contracting and procurement process.
Menendez’s survey was one of the most successful of its kind, garnering input from 219 corporations on the Fortune 500 list and 71 on the Fortune 100 list.
