A total of 15 retailers/wholesalers have made Forbes’ sixth annual roster of the 500 most diverse businesses in the U.S.

The list was developed based on an independent survey from a sample of approximately 45,000 U.S.-based employees. The survey was administered anonymously in a series of online panels where participants were asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as age, gender, ethnicity, disability and sexual-orientation equality.

Respondents belonging to underrepresented groups also were asked to nominate organizations other than their own. The final list ranked the 500 employers that received the most recommendations and demonstrated diversity-related best-practices.

Here are the retailers/wholesalers that made the list, along with their overall rankings:

  • # 9 Williams-Sonoma
  • # 30 Ulta Beauty
  • # 37 Grainger
  • # 39 LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics
  • # 65 Target
  • # 88 AmerisourceBergen
  • # 94 Best Buy
  • # 96 The Home Depot
  • # 116 Macy’s

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
