PwC Recognized for Trying the Hardest to Not Be Old, White, Male

Prestigiest Big 4 firm, PwC, can add another feather in its cap, as it has now been named the diversiest company by DiversityInc. For those of you that get hung up on methodology, this is how they score the survey that determines which companies are the least Mitt Romney-ish:

The survey consists of more than 300 empirical questions (no subjective or qualitative information), which have predetermined weightings. Ratios between key factors, such as demographics of managers compared with managers who received promotions and demographics of the workforce compared with people promoted into their first management positions, play a significant factor in determining point scores. Companies must score above average in all four areas to earn a spot on the list and demonstrate strong consistency across the board in their diversity-management initiatives. Companies are measured within their industry classifications.

And if you're not impressed with that, P. Dubs was also recognized on various other lists that are scored in a similar fashion: 

No. 1 in The DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for Recruitment & Retention

No. 1 in The DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for Executive Women

No. 5 in The DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for Global Diversity

No. 6 in The DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for LGBT Employees

No. 8 in The DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for Asian Americans

If you're scoring these sorts of things at home (admit it, some of you are), Ernst & Young was 6th, Deloitte was 8th, and KPMG was 22nd.
