BDO USA Named to Newsweek’s 2024 List of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity

CHICAGO, FEBRUARY 26, 2024 – BDO USA, one of the nation’s leading accounting and advisory firms, has been honored as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity by Newsweek. The annual listing recognizes U.S. companies for dedication to supporting a diverse workforce, and BDO USA was awarded a five-star rating. This year’s honorees were determined by Plant-A Insights Group, a market-data research firm, through a survey of more than 220,000 individuals who reviewed more than 1.5 million companies in America.

We have actively invested time, efforts and resources into becoming a more diverse and inclusive organization, and I am proud of the steps we have made towards progress. Progress, however, would not be possible without our people and their passion for fostering a culture of belonging. It is our honor to be recognized for building a workplace where each of us can thrive as our authentic selves.

Shortlisted companies are scored and categorized by industry. BDO USA was among the highest rated overall, earning five out of five possible stars in the large-company category.
