For the fifth consecutive year, Nielsen was named to Diversity MBAs “Best Companies for Women and Diverse Managers,” also known as the 50 Out Front list, placing at number nine. This year, Diversity MBA’s survey emphasized companies that have strategically crafted a talent development pipeline, ensuring women and diverse associates have access to leadership roles. Nielsen was also named to Diversity MBA’s Top 10 Best in Class Categories for Recruitment, Board Diversity, Succession Planning, Workplace Inclusion, and Accountability.

“We are honored that Diversity MBA has seen the progress that we have made at Nielsen over the past five years to infuse diversity and inclusion into the DNA of our company. From leaders challenging themselves and their teams to demonstrate inclusive behaviors to our associates becoming more engaged in sharing diverse insights both inside and outside Nielsen, our culture is changing,” said Angela Talton, Chief Diversity Officer. “We’re building a culture in which the diverse perspectives, backgrounds and experiences of our associates are truly heard and valued.”

Here are a few of the highlights that helped us garner this recognition:

“This recognition is more important than ever given the rapidly diversifying global population,” Angela added. “Our continued presence on the Diversity MBA Top 50 Out Front list shows that we’re taking all the right steps toward creating a corporate culture where diversity and inclusion is a priority.”

Four Nielsen associates were also named to Diversity MBA’s “100 Under 50 Emerging & Executive Leaders” list: Arun Ramaswamy, Chief Engineer; Chad Dreas, Managing Director, Media Analytics; Ana Petras, Director, Data Science; and Lena Mcintyre, Project Manager. At the September Awards Gala, each recipient was recognized for this designation.
