The University of Texas at Austin earned a spot on “America’s Best Employers for Diversity 2021” list by Forbes, which released the rankings on Tuesday, April 20.

UT Austin placed 215th out of 500 employers with more than 5,000 employees in the annual ranking. Last February, the university also placed 119th on Forbes’ 2021 list of “America’s Best Large Employers.”

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey 50,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees and pinpoint the companies they identified as being most dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion. The final list ranks the 500 employers that not only received the most recommendations, but also boast the most diverse boards and executive ranks, as well as the most proactive diversity and inclusion initiatives.
