The Rochester Business Journal hosts Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summits annually to educate bring together leaders in this area to help others grow their DEI efforts. It is time to recognize those organizations that have made DEI part of their mission. We are proud to announce that RBJ, COLOR Magazine and Best Companies Group are partnering together to launch the inaugural Best Places to Work For DEI awards.




Sept. 13, 2022

Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center

Businesses in Western and Central New York and the Finger Lakes region are encouraged to apply. The organization and staff will be surveyed separately to gauge the success of DEI efforts, and Best Companies Group will analyze the data and identify the Best Companies in NY for DEI.

Companies will be honored in categories by size (large, medium, and small businesses). Winners will be announced in late July and will be celebrated at an event in September, when the official ranking of the Best Companies to Work for DEI will be revealed by category.

By participating, companies can work with Best Companies Group to access the insights report package and learn their strength and areas for improvement in DEI practices. Most importantly, every participating organization will show DEI practices are a priority.
