In total, 13 Fairfax County-based companies made the list, according to the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA).
Forbes released the third annual list with 500 companies on Tuesday (Jan. 21).
“The workforce today — and the workforce of tomorrow — want to see a commitment to diversity and inclusion by employers,” Victor Hoskins, FCEDA’s president and CEO, said in a press release. “[The ranking] is a testament to these Fairfax County companies’ efforts to attract talented employees from all backgrounds and walks of life.”
Two Tysons area companies cracked the top 100. (SAP in Pennsylvania nabbed the #1 spot.)
Here are the ranks the Tysons area companies received on the list:

More from FCEDA about the list:
Forbes developed the rankings in partnership with market research firm Statista. To create the list, employers were identified in an independent survey from a sample of more than 60,000 U.S. employees working for companies with at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations.
According to Forbes, additional factors were considered such as diversity levels among executives, existence of a leadership position responsible for diversity, proactive communication about diversity and the presence of a diverse company culture.
