Monsanto has been named to DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for Diversity list for the ninth year in a row.

“Our company continues to advocate for equal rights in the workplace and be a voice for change,” Monsanto Chairman and CEO Hugh Grant said. “We take great pride in the diversity we represent and the company we have become.”

The company made the list this year based on its exceptional leadership, talent development initiatives, strong employee resource groups and its commitment to communities around the world.

“In an increasingly complex global environment, farmers from all over the world look to us for innovative agricultural solutions,” Melissa Harper, Monsanto's vice president for Global Talent Acquisition, Inclusion and Diversity, said. “Creating those solutions will require people with diverse viewpoints and backgrounds to come together under an inclusive and innovative culture. Inclusion and diversity are vital in creating a great place to work for our employees and an essential business driver for our company.”

The Diversity List is compiled based on an analysis of 183 factors from a 300-question survey completed by companies that have at least 1,000 U.S. employees. Monsanto also ranked No. 7 in the Top 12 Companies for Employee Resource Groups list and No. 8 on the Top 9 Companies for People with Disabilities list.
