As Black women, diversity can be a huge issue for us when looking for the best workplace experience. And the more you grow in your career, the more important it is to make sure that the company you work for embraces—and enforces—a truly inclusive culture. Research has found that companies with higher levels of gender diversity have less turnover and more professionals with job satisfaction. Also, they've been found to be more profitable, with cash flows at 2.3 times higher than competitors with monolithic workplaces.

Who wouldn't want to work for a company that is not only a leader in its industry but takes diversity beyond just a buzzword? FlexJobs has compiled a list of best jobs for diversity with an added bonus: They're all remote-friendly.

"In almost every survey conducted of people working remotely during the pandemic, the overwhelming majority of both employees and employers say it's been positive and productive," said Brie Reynolds, career development manager and coach at FlexJobs. "And most want to continue working remotely even after the pandemic has subsided and it's safe to return to offices."

Knowing what companies are found to be diverse as well as accommodating to remote work is a plus. This is especially true for professionals who would rather have more control over their exposure to COVID-19, their ability to accommodate things like their children's home schooling, or their options to save on commute expenses.

"We cross-referenced Comparably's list of the 50 highest-rated large companies for diversity in 2020 to the FlexJobs database of more than 57,000 flexwork-friendly companies, to find out which of the best large companies for diversity is also a leader in offering flexible work arrangements," Reynolds added. "More than half made the cut because they were rated highly on Comparably's list and have a history of posting flexible and remote jobs."

Comparably, a platform that offers compensation data for public and private companies, came to its findings via the anonymous feedback of employees of color over the past 12 months. The rankings were "determined based on a combination of questions in 20 core culture metrics, from compensation and leadership to work environment and professional development opportunities."

Below are the top 15 companies for diversity on FlexJobs' list.

1. Microsoft

2. RingCentral

In fact, research by insurance giant Prudential has found that 1 in 4 workers are looking toward new career horizons, and another recent survey of professionals ages 18-24 found that 66% have felt stuck in their careers since the pandemic began.

Like many, I was introduced to Tiffany Haddish when I went to see the hilarious film Girls Trip. I came into the theatre expecting to chuckle a bit and just enjoy a movie night. But little did I know, this was a film I'd be watching so many more times and that would put Tiffany on the map as a breakout star. From start to finish, I laughed hysterically and even spent the evening with one of my girlfriends, sharing and reflecting on our own college memories. Fast forward to today, Tiffany Haddish is an Emmy- and Grammy-winning household name.

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.
