Microsoft’s Satya Nadella has been rated the best CEO in the US by Black, Indigenous, and people of color who work for him.
That’s according to Comparably’s annual survey of the top 25 CEOs, ranked by non-white employees. Comparably surveyed workers at 60,000 large and small companies in the US from June 30, 2019, through June 30, 2020. The survey asked employees to rate CEOs on their overall effectiveness and management style, as well as the company’s workplace culture. The company said it used 10 million ratings to compile the final rankings.
Nadella took the top spot among large companies, moving up considerably since last year’s survey, where he came in at No. 15.
Nadella wasn’t the only tech CEO to rank among the best leaders when it comes to diversity. In fact, 7 of the top 10 CEOs hail from the tech industry:
- Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO
- Vlad Shmunis, CEO of cloud company RingCentral
- Sundar Pichai, Google CEO
- Eric Yuan, Zoom CEO
- Carlos Rodriguez, ADP CEO
- Steve Bilt, Smile Brands CEO
- Sid Sijbrandij, CEO of DevOps software GitLab
- Tim Cook, Apple CEO
- Mike Walsh, LexisNexis CEO
- Chris Caldwell, Concentrix CEO
Adobe’s Shantanu Narayen and Instacart’s Apoorva Mehta also made the top 25.
After the killing of George Floyd in May sparked nationwide protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, Nadella publicly championed the movement in an email sent to employees and a blog post on the company’s website.
“We are committed to take action to help address racial injustice and inequity, and unequivocally believe that Black lives matter,” Nadella wrote on Microsoft’s blog.
Nadella announced that Microsoft would commit $150 million to improving its diversity and inclusion efforts and would increase the number of Black employees in leadership positions within the company. The company reported in its 2019 diversity report that its total workforce is only 4.5% Black, and less than 3% of employees in senior roles are Black.
